ÀWÈRÓ Àwèró, the only woman squaring my moon Your beauty is priceless Your character is just so perfect. Àwèró, your lips are like lilies Dropping sweet smelling myrrh Your eyes are as the eyes of dove By the rivers of waters. Àwèró, I have been to Ólúwêrî If she could clear off this love spell Away from my eyes But she couldn't. Àwèró, I have met with Sángó Ólúkòsó If he could strike out this obsession But he couldn't. Àwèró, the 7 hills of iree was not left out I climbed them with courage and hope To prove what I have for you. Àwèró, dakun gbó temi My love for you is above flowers. You are the source of my joy Òrisà Òkè can attest to that. Àwèró, let me be lost in your heart For I listen not to the Hunter's whistle Let me go astray in thy thoughts For I give unto you all that I bear. ©Rita Oyewale.
