Love  Anew

Valentine Day – 14th Feb, 2022

https://allpoetry.com/poem/16370458-Love–Anew-by-Henrychukwuma717

Starting afresh, I met and loved again 

This time, I pray for the best after my worst days 

***

Like a rose flower cuddled with white ribbon, 

She is wrapped in gracefulness and beauty

My heart leaps and beats for her 

***

We shared and laughed for a while 

In person and through the phone, 

But the closeness grew and grew into love

***

Known each other just for a while 

But It seemed like one year, 

The longing for each other was real

We felt and admitted it

***

Can we walk through life’s road holding hands together?

I think we can, what about you?

Can we share happiness and sadness together?

Yes, we can, what do you think?

Can we protect each other and succeed together?

I believe we can, what about you?

Can we share the worst experiences with sincerity and trust?

I think we can, what do you think?

***

As we get to know each other, 

Ponder on these questions, 

Hold them in your hearts 

And your dreams will become clear 

***

I cannot promise you the sun

but I can help you shine 

I cannot take you to the moon

but I can share everything with you

and make your sadness go away 

I cannot give you the world

but I can walk through life’s thorns together with you 

***

Clasped hand in hand, 

Let’s walk the path of love

Loving and caring for each other 

Not minding what anyone says 

Caring less what life throws at us

***

Journey on with me

https://allpoetry.com/poem/16300547-Journey-on-with-me-by-Henrychukwuma717

When life is mean and people act like beasts

What do we care if not personal interests?

I won’t quit living having come this far

In this miserable place of hellish despair

***

[Chorus:]

Journey on with me

Through the brightest day

And far into the darkest night

‘Cause we will wake up

To see a new day before us

***

I’m ready to take on the world with you,

Together, we will fly and never break our wings

Just the two of us against the world

***

[Chorus:]

Journey on with me

Through the brightest day

And far into the darkest night

‘Cause we will wake up

To see a new day before us

***

Even when nobody can be trusted again

I’ll trust you, ‘because I know you won’t betray it;

I’ll raise you when you fall,

And when I rise unto glory, my place is yours;

***

I got your back and you’ve watched mine too,

Away from the world’s miseries

We’re happy to stand for ourselves;

***

In every chapter of history I’ll make

You’ll have a space to occupy in every page

I won’t tear down the sky for you, ‘because I can’t

But I’ll place you above it, for that I can

***

[Chorus:]

Journey on with me

Through the brightest day

And far into the darkest night

‘Cause we will wake up

To see a new day before us

Lyrics on “practical expectations of genuine love, sacrifice, friendship and relationship

Also, you can read it in https://allpoetry.com/poem/16077807-A-package-of-love–by-Henrychukwuma717

You who chose me

When I had nothing

With loyalty and confidence

That I am a treasure,

***

You chose nothing

In the world except me

Hence, I’ll reject

The entire world for you;

***

You who stayed

By my dreams to protect them

With passion and zeal

That they’ll come true;

***

Among the things

You deserve most-

Crowning you

With stars is the least;

***

Clasped hand in hand,

We’ll conquer

With the will to live in the future,

Stopping even time,

***

Together, in good faith

Let’s walk down the aisle

To confess our solemn oath

Of love to humans and to God.

***

Forever, you’ll become

The cornerstone

Of the history I’ll make.

It’s always us

https://allpoetry.com/poem/16034168-It-s-always-us–by-Henrychukwuma717

It’s always us all the way

From yesterday’s sunset till today’s dawn

It’s always us

***

From tears to laughter, from sorrow to joy

It’s always us

***

Walking on thorns together, fearing not its pricks

It’s always us

***

Unstoppable, we’re like legion but just two

It’s always us

***

Flying together without perching

It’s always us

***

Climbing together without resting

It’s always us

***

Running together without halting,

we’ve been running this race

And

It’s always us all the way

***

It’s always us all the way

***

Molded from the Ashes of Life-phenomena

https://allpoetry.com/poem/16010757-Molded-from-the-Ashes-of-Life-phenomena-by-Henrychukwuma717

Through the decision of my past

The tale of my future embodies blissful crest;

Though co-mixed with rights and wrongs

Still, with my head held high, Escaping woeful throngs.

***

I feel high when in goodness, I thrive

Yet, in abundance of success,

Always happiness, I derive.

As I beckon on the best life can offer

I await the worst it can as well proffer.

***

Bounded by my staunch will and hope

Of a better tomorrow that will come

Even amidst shattered dust of past ashes

That will in short time stand tall as lofty glories.

***

In salutation to my honour as a hustler

I pledge in all my struggles to be ‘a big-time player

Crouched with the faith of ‘what comes my way

I’ll in an ultimate degree, my dues pay.

An Ode to the God of Last Minute

(In honour of the great deeds of Almighty God – creator of all creatures)

Many a times, you’ve defiled scientific research,

With miracles, you’ve shock the world many times,

If blood runs through my veins

And I breathe with my nose,

No human and spirit can be your match;

***

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

What humans often thought difficult, you’ve made easier,

We owe you nothing but praises and true worship,

If I’m a champion today, you made it possible

I owe it to you if I’ve been counted successful,

***

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

You’ve sustained me with undying will-power

And blessed the works of my hands with grace,

You’ve decorated my life’s itinerary with journey mercies,

In the pit of despair, I cry for help

And at the last minute, you answered me

***

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

On the mountain of aloneness

You became my companion

And gave me wings to fly,

If the ocean can divide itself in your name

You’ve proved to be God of surprises,

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

If you can talk through thunder and rainstorm

You’re mightier than I thought;

If you can raise dead bones to life

You’ve gotten no worthy challenger,

***

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

If from the tunnel of death, you’ve given me life

You’re the one who says “who dies and who lives”,

If you can exalt me high in the arena of disgrace

Your divine will can’t be fathomed,

With faith I’ve believed

That you’ve blessed me since morning

Though, when you wake up

Becomes your own morning time

***

[Chorus:]

Oh! You’re a God that’s true

And my family and I will serve you in truth,

If to me, you’re this true

Why won’t I worship only you?

***

Be there for me

I’ve been your shield

Can you be there for me too?

Not as a cheap ass

Nor a cheat lass

***

[Chorus]

When I see you, I see hope

You’ve been the one on top

That has kept me going atop

***

Love is a friendly prison,

Even when it weakens the flesh

It strengthens the heart

And purifies the soul too

***

[Chorus]

When I see you, I see hope

You’ve been the one on top

That has kept me going atop

***

When in water, I flow still

At sea shore you always stand still

Keeping watch always

As I jump my hurdles

***

[Chorus]

When I see you, I see hope

You’ve been the one on top

That has kept me going atop
