If Only You Find

Poem By Victor Ekpo

Find me a person
With childhood innocence
Youthful exuberance
Adult enterprise
The aged's wisdom

Search the world for
Eyes that can distinguish black from white
Ears that know truth from lies
A nose that aches when it smells bad
A mouth that edifies

I need someone with
A child's love, to enclose me
A youth's strength, to go all the way with me
An adult's stability, to be there when I panic
The aged's patience, to tolerate me always

If u discover one whose
Hands can work
Legs will stay
Body is pure
And whose heart is mine

Then tell her I am on the aisle waiting
If only you find.
