Birthday Celebrant

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

As usual, let me be the first to wish you
As normal, let me be the mouth that praises you
If only distance and time hadn't drawn the hills between me and you
Today would have bean feasting with me holding you

Your birth raised a dust and tears of joy
Many would have dug a grave wishing you less than joy
Had angels of peace and prosperity not promised joy
What will be will be and you forever an epitome of joy

May the eyes with which I saw you never go blind
May the hands I shook and held you with wealth ever uphold
May the memory we have of each other and times past never fade
May my love for you though never shown never degrade
And the purpose for which we were joined ever stand

Many will laugh because you live
And God for creating you endless joyfulness shall have
And your parents and relatives and acquaintances song of praises shall weave
For unto the earth and beyond a glorious blessing you shall give
For your days and life to many shall cause a song of love

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
