TEMINIKAN

It wasn’t easy turning away from you
Sure like the sun rise
Is your love

Upon my bed I groaned
Sacred vow I made
A budding pal we appeared
Until nature's verdict played
Like Haiti earthquake
My guards shattered
A glowing dream muffled

Upon my bed I groaned
Sacred vow I made
A wave of pain I bore
Sighting you in anguish
Another traumatic jilt 
Repose far from my being
Your sonorous voice I heard

Why did you leave?

*TEMINIKAN* is a pet name between lovers meaning MINE ALONE in Yoruba language
