Because You Said Yes

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

The gloominess that once was
Gave in to light that brought smiles
And the loner feels your presence even in your absence
And strength birthed by coherence
Gave a vision to the hopeless

And the journey began
One of a thousand miles with a step began
Zeal and energy with purpose a focus
Smiles on our faces and prayers in our hearts
And this mountain that once was
Like a stone is kicked off its base
Barriers were there until one word made it clearer
And its true look even simpler

The world is overcome
The pillars are weightless
Light after the tunnel an understatement
My shoulders since built for weight
Yet like a wool I had thought it
Until your word came hitting
And I see my strength from within
That which had always been

What love can do
Makes the unbeliever believe
That life that never was is
And turn the sorrowful smile to cow and bees
That the flow of honey and milk never cease

Oh love that's unconditional flown
And existing errors and weaknesses never known
And the heart the center of it all softened

And I see a brighter her
The mindset against all hers killed
Oh so true true love can come of them
And some flowers can be a safe haven for the once ever wondering butterfly

And see the tears of joy
Replacing the sorrowful smile
And the owner remains the wearer
And together we shall drive the world
Because you said yes

Remember Who I Should Be

I am the womb that gave you life
The shield from harshness from uncanny uncertain destination
And you had to breathe by my breath
And bone up by my bones

Gone Too Soon

You came at dawn
With the zeal and energy of a young day
Promising and hoping all impossibilities to win
The world seemed a cascade of labyrinth decoy

You're My Lullaby

You are the song that I sing
Then when my heart get excited at mere promises
When all roads lead to the distance ever longed for
When the sun walks away


You are my dawn
My early morning wine
The sweet smell of the promising morning
No other rose is pearly enough to give the stress if I must choose between you and one


Take me now that I'm available for you to see
Otherwise I'd fly like a bird with wings flapped freely
Have me now that you own me
Otherwise the trees won't sense my perch for all they'd stay

Marriage Of My Dreams

I dream of a marriage where my wife is me, is my friend and my partner, more like she is my skin

I dream of a marriage where the meeting that my wife is present is no longer in need of my presence because they'll get the same effect
