NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Amidst journeying through life's wilderness,

my heart is always fulsome with merriness 

at the thought of returning to my homely nest 

like birds after the day's labour to rest:

Priceless is my mother's warm-hearted embrace

In which I find a soothing solace;

Equally doting is my father's gentle pat of pride 

on my back for my academic stride.

My ears incessantly pines for the details 

Of my siblings' endless tales

about all that happened in my absence;

There is possibly no place like home hence.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
