My Sword of Love by Chisom-Nonso Henry Chukwuma

My Sword of Love

by Chisom-Nonso Henry Chukwuma

Coming right through her
I became shuddered,
Upon all my bravery
I still submitted to her.

On the road of life
Where affliction abounds
Love still conquers hate
And time heals all wounds.

Even in my darkest hour
My flame of love for her
Burns like a burning spear.
Like a blazing sword
Sharper than double-edge saw
My blade of love can cut down
Flying arrows of lost-love at night.

With her strength of will
I’ll run into the future with her
Never to live in the past with her shadows;
From the river bed of problems
Through the ocean of struggles
To the mountain of greatness,
You’ll be my life-journey mate.

Giving up her future for me
She offers me ladder
Of success to climb higher
Registering me for the top
She sacrifices her womanhood
For my bright future;
Just like she chose me for greatness
I chose her for eternity.

Somebody tell me why
I’ll not worship her among gods,
Somebody tell me why
I’ll not die in her stead amidst danger,
Somebody tell me why
I’ll not take an oath-
To protect her beyond myself
Even in the shrine of darkness,
Somebody tell me why
I’ll not save her
Even from the deepest abyss.

I’ll wipe away her tears
The day I’ll achieve breakthrough
In fulfillment of my love for her;
You who gave me your shoulders-
To rest my overburdened head
Away from the world’s miseries,
You who lent me your warm bosom
To lay at ease my troubled heart,
You have given me in this life
More than I can repay you in a lifetime.
With my whole being,
I Love you ‘my love’- Happiness
