I KNOW WHO YOU ARE You are the morning Virgin ripe like the full bunch Benin banana Crystal clear like the revered coastal river Bright and bold as the Bantu warriors Resplendent with the radiance of the sun at first peep from the ozone horizon you are the one who shines out my darkness you the one who turns up and I am lit me up all inside out I know who you are You are the high noon Drying up my tears Charging me up with effervescent energies Scorching drying all my foes I know who you are You are the evening Descending gently You come and cool your way into my wary soul Your call forth dance drama With evening showers You cll forth the moon To hold out the impending darkness You seduce the stars To shine my soul to glory And inspire my mind to creativity You are the night You prepare me ready Lulling me with gentle breeze To a sleep of sweet dreams I know who you are You are my most precious gift My jewel of value inestimable You are the love of my life My inner wheel of strength The clue to the puzzle of my life You are my complement I know who you are You are the bird of flight That gives me wings and fly on high You make me cover mileage in minutes You give me wide lead among my equals I know who you are, Olubunkola You are mine The human angel You are my God-sent My very best next person after me
