love and pain

Written by: COMFORT EBOIGBE

Oh thee my beloved
Whence has though gone
I look for thee in day and night
Yet thy shadow have I seen not
My sleep be erupted
And my vision be blurred
But my beloved is yet to be found
I ask the mountains
Yet I get not my reply
I beg for all in nature to tell me of thy steps
To complete my shadows
And restore my good dreams
And when all hope was lost
The lily told me of where my beloved lay
Running faster than my heels
I ran to hold my beloved
And I turned back to whence I came from
For in my beloved ‘s arms was another
