The Vow

Poem By Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

on this day, I cross my heart
pledge to you all my love
to put your hand in my hand
and as long as the stars shine above
I’ll make your dreams come true
and because you are everything I need
I promise from this moment
to stand by your side and never let you go
to be yours even in my silent memory

I vow to care and be true
when the wings of death scatter our days
to stand strong like the oak tree
when the night gets sticky and the sky so black
I promise to be flexible as the cypress
when life isn’t anything but a cold hard ride
and as we share our days on this earth
I’ll let the winds of heaven dance between us

I pledge with my heart
to be a moving sea of Love
a blessing between the shores of our souls
I promise to laugh and cry with you;
to always love and honor you;
thus, always bound by our love,
I will carry and treasure your ring
till the end of God's given time
my love, has no other desire but to fulfill this

Little Daisy

grow my sweet daisy
plant your roots within these veins
flourishing more so than
the grass that tickles your stem

On My 40th Birthday

last night
before I lay down to sleep
I prayed the Lord my shape to keep
to let no wrinkles come.

Can’t Promise Anything

I can't promise you roses
which bloom of brilliant red
but I promise, when you need me
as much as possible


we are the dog who caught the game
but are made to take comfort in the bones
beneath the master’s table

Cherished Friend

God knows there would be times
we'd need a word of cheer
want the face of smile
to brush away our tears
