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.

Ebuka:

Once upon a time,

I was naked and waiting for a review.

Today I now inherited a prime,

A journey of me and you

Chioma:

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.

Ebuka:

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.

Chioma:

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.

Ebuka:

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.
