WAKE UP THE LOVE

WAKE UP THE LOVE

A POEM
Love
Do you still melt from the look
Do you still shiver from the touch
Does it still feel like you’re on a hook
Wishing your together time was much

Do you still sit up and wait
Or you no longer, cause it’s “late”
Do you still “like” your mate,
Or there’s no hunger, nothing to elate

How about the sweet love notes
When was the last time you wrote
How about the many hugs and kisses
When last did you weep from so many misses

Have you forgotten how you felt
Have you allowed love to melt
Have you ignored your vows
Have you continued in the row

I know you can still remember
No matter how faint
Love in your heart so tender
Your world so colourfully paint

You can get back there
With some work and patience
You can start now and here
With a resolute choice

You can be kind again
Even when it hurts
You can touch again
Even with no response

You must sow the right seeds
Your marriage is the ground
Try to leave your own needs
And be a peace/love hound

To reap the harvest
You must do your part
And don’t give up the trust
That you will win the heart

It can be revived
It can get better
It can survive
In this stormy weather

Your marriage may be rocking
Everything may be mocking
But if make God your anchor
You sure will find succour

He created marriage
He knows best to make it work
He can give you that leverage
And you won’t have to sulk

If you would listen and follow
His every single word
If you would remain mellow
And let Him be your Lord

You will be victorious
You will find peace
No longer precarious
But souls at ease

  4. Ugochi, with respect, when was the last time you prayed for forgiveness for the Devil! or is he not worthy? I just think that if we prayed for him and the power of pray turned him around and he returned to the fold, our world may be just a little like heaven.be well agman
