Once and Forever


Once and forever poetry talks about seizing and making the best use of the moment. It’s about two lovers’ desire for the future.

Once and Forever

[Bar beach Lagos]

They walk side by side as they talk. This is their third date. It was designed to build up their commitment in the relationship.


Once upon a time,

I was naked and waiting for a review.

Today I now inherited a prime,

A journey of me and you


Once upon a time,

I had one to create a new start.

But today I have found the thyme,

The final ingredient to the stew of my unadorned heart.


From inception you’ve remained the whole,

To completion you revolved again and again.

From day one you’ve ensnared my soul,

Free now for I have obtained that rain.


My stems were weakened and falling out,

You looked deep and gave me a hand.

Thereafter, you remained that one scout,

The one who rebuilt me beyond my dreamland.

Today is the beginning of something new,

Soon, there would be a morrow.

You’ve melted my heart with words I can’t eschew.

With you, I feel like on the top of Mt Kilimanjaro.


I am happy because you are.

I am so glad because you believed in me;

No matter the journey near or far,

All I have on you I let it be.
