Poem By Femi Folami
And I blew you a kiss,
sent it sailing, sent it soaring
on the winds of Oya, to keep
you safe, make you warm.
And I knew that goodbye,
was a beginning, just beginning..
of a new life you see, of a new life for me,
and I labored and laughed at my impudence.
Wondering where did it come from?
this 'she thing' made of 'he thing'
and I laughed and I loved my lost innocence.
And that kiss that I flew and sent sailing to you
on the wings of a prayer, on the winds of Oya,
set us free, made me strong
us be...all alone.
She and I now full grown,
and we both wonder at your absence
