A Pondering Heart

A) In The Room

  • As I opened my

Eyes to the world

Behold I have woken up,


  • Still lying on my

Bed my mind troubled

Me what is happening?


  • The reasons for this

Heaviness of heart in

Me Is yet unclear.


  • I rolled to the

Right and to the

Left at this position


  • After a while, sat

I at the edge of

my palmfrond made mat


  • I Tried to figure

Out what it was

The matter could be


  • It was horrifying to

Discover that I was

Unable to figure out anything


  • What can be happening?

No one in particular

Is being talked to


  • Me and me alone

In particular is being

Addressed at this position


  • Stood I to my feet,

Walked to the corner

Of the small room


  • Where I used to

Put a clay lamp

To illuminate the room


  • This clay is made

Like a kettle with

Oil poured in it


  • At the outlet is cotton,

With part of the

Cotton dipped into oil


  • The cotton through attraction

Would carry the oil

Molecules to the tip


  • When the tip is

Being lighted it will

Illuminate the entire area


  • The oil must have

Ran out as the

Light is now out


  • Tried to peep outside

But nothing could be

Seen everywhere still dark


  • Luckily the stones

For lighting is still

Where I kept them


  • Dipped my hand into

The open end of

The kettle-like clay


  • Wow! No oil in

There again searched for

Oil jar with my hand


  • Got it removed the

Covering lid poured oil

Into the kettle-like clay


  • Draw out the cotton

Hit the two stones together

At the side of the cotton


  • After a while it lighted

Started glowing bit by bit

Just drawing out the oil


  • Palm frond leaves are

Used as ropes being

Tied edge to edge


  • This rope is tied

From an edge of the room

To the other edge


  • On this rope like

Structure do I hang

All my cloths


  • I can see where

My clothes are

Hanging across the room


  • Brushed aside the

Overlying ones to see

The cloth I want to take


  • I put it on

Took a clay pot,

Set out for the streams,


B) Going to The Stream

  • As I trekked on,

My mind kept on racing

I keep thinking,


  • My mind flashes back,

To the past events

Positive and negative pasts


Her love for me is

Like a gentle flowing

Water in this stream



  • Soon enough I was

By the stream bank,

To fetch water


  • I went to the area

Where we used to

Fetch water from


C) At The Stream

  • Bend down dip my

Calabash into the stream

Started scooping the water


  • With my calabash into

The clay pot until

The pot is filled up


  • After filling the clay

Pot with water stood

I still by the river,


  • Watching the water as

It gently moves on

Then remembered I my love,


D) Remembered My Love

  • Her love for me is

Like a gentle flowing

Water in this stream


  • A flowing stream is

Pure, clean and clear

Un-like stagnant river,


  • Its nay like lake,

Which is not flowing

Divers things fall into it


  • Those things which fell,

Into the lake remain there

Become decayed in there


  • The components released by

Those decaying materials

Mix with the water components


  • Soon compounds would be

Formed which would change

Lake’s chemical composition


  • The toxic and injurious

Substances released would

Affect everything in the lake


  • And which soon becomes

stinking, horrendous and nauseating

Are the smell from the lake


  • But my love is un-like that,

She is purely-clear,

She is clear like crystal,


  • She is whiter as snow,

She demonstrates God's

Uniqueness purity per excellence


  • She is a joy not

Only to me but

Unto many like stream,


  • My love's source never

Runs dry because my love

Allows no intruder into it,


  • My love's source

Keeps springing out

Water contents for her


  • My love is linked with

Her origin she is

Linked up with the sea


  • As it is possible

To see the floor bed

Of stream at some corners


  • So is the depth

Of my love's love

For me revealed


  • As the breeze from

Stream brings me comfort,

So is my love’s breeze


Oh! The comforting love

Of my bird for me

Is beyond cold water


  • As many people become

Blessed by the stream,

Many are blessed by my love


  • The expression of our

Love to each other

Stimulates others love


  • At these knowledge,

The burden of my

Heart flee away.


  • Oh! My Jewel,

Oh! My Love

Oh! My Stream


  • Oh! The flowing love

My Pearl has for me,

Is beyond description


  • Oh! The comforting love

Of my bird for me

Is beyond cold water


  • Oh! The blessed love

Of my one and only bird,

Is heav’nly sent


  • Oh! How soothing my

Apple's arms around me,

Surpasses the best analgesic


‘Can’t do without

Her kisses for it

Keeps me alive



  • As the early morning

Waters from the streams.

So is my apple


  • My darling's lips

Are full of love,

Yea, unfeigned love


  • Her lips are coated

With honey, Uhmn better

Than the honey comb


  • My Jewel's lips

Are very good

Extremely good in kissing

  • ‘Can’t do without

Her kisses for it

Keeps me alive


  • With her mouth

She on daily

Basis feeds me,


  • On her knees

She will be to

Welcome me to her


  • My darling...My crown...

My Diadem...My Love...

My Bird...My Heart...


  • My Water...My Blessings...

My Star...My Glory...

My Angel...My comfort


  • God gave me you....

God gave you me...

Forever bonded ‘gether


  • Together fulfilling the

Desires of the Lord for

"Us" in all ramifications


  • In blessings, glories,

Promotions, awards,

Fulfillment and comforts
