You're My Lullaby

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

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
And treeshades fall
And the crickets whistle
And the cold breeze lay me on the bed
In the midst of the deafening silence
I awake to the shrieking cry of a new young
You are my lullaby

When the morning dawns
With chains breaking on my backs
And thorns covering my heads
And the bloods ghush out slowly
Trickling down through my spines to my toes
And even when I walk on concrete floors on my knees
For all the comfort you'd ever need
You're my lullaby

When others are treading on red carpets
And visit beer parlors and clubs
Pools and parties
When the cost of luxury to me affordable
Yet I chose to look the other way
That the postponement may feed and clothe an extra mouth and body
That a dream so desired comes awake
I let go just to get in
My only comfort is that
You're my lullaby

No worries stay me up till morning
No headache leaves my milk soured
No load is ever too heavy for the owner
You suckled my breasts and sat on my laps
Now you crawl, soon you'll walk and run
But till you can stand on your feet
Your worries are my command
For for love's sake more than obligation demands
You are my lullaby

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

T'emi

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

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
