POEM: To Jiddah_Ah
By Ibrahim Lawal Ahmed
Sitting silently in a park,
My sight fix on a lake,
The breeze bringing back memories,
And birds keeping my company.
I hear your voice,
Whispering in my ears.
I see your smiles,
Whenever I close my eyes.
Though the seven seas keep us apart,
You are always in my heart,
When you smile,
And when you think of me,
I am right there.
You know, the bond of friendship,
Defies the barriers of age and religion,
Of time and space,
And the envy of human race.
So I am sending you this poem,
A letter of peace and pure love,
To tell you I always care,
And say cheers for the World Poetry Day.
Dear beloved friend,
I’ve always wandered which was better
Between days and nights
Between skys and oceans
And between friends and lovers
Now I can tell
Pure love comes with friendship
And so those trust
A peculiar bond
That marks one’s life even deeper than love
Could there ever be love without friendship?
Truly, friendship is life’s most perfect gift
And I would cherish ours to the end of time
