Lost Stranger

Let the waters lift you
beyond the sky
Let the sun wrap it
brightness in gold
Let it sprinkle on you,
so you fly
Let the world be
hush and stand
for it is your day
You are love.

Love is a subtle dream
disguised in a being
dark and bright
strong and soft
firm and gentle.
Love is your heart in my hands.

Love is a hand in a black wallet
a two, one thousand naira note
to a lost stranger
love is a selfless giving
love is a selfless waiting
for endless days
Love is continuous trust
Love is absolute understanding
of ideologies
Love is outstanding patience
Love is constant encouragement
love is you.

This is dedicated to a great man. HAPPY BIRTHDAY
