Not for you...

If I shed tears
It is not for you, Adunni
If I made thorns my nest
And clay my bread
It is not for you
I ignored the pleasant sights of Venus
I resisted the pleasures of Jezebel
I refused to hide in the trojan horse
To conjugate in the naked night
Only If I never risked my father's rod
To love you afterall

How could you have danced with me in the rain
When your love was not to reign

If I sat at the doorway
Lost in thoughts all day
with no words to say
Sighing 'n' Grieving
How i end in deperdition
It is not for you, Adunni


My heart is stained n bittered
By the shores of Nile you flattered, You wooed n tamed me
The sands of Arabia felt our warmth
The bright skies of the Austria
Gazed on us
We were magic to the Hindu's
Trapped in your viscious smiles


Ah, I begged Time
To call back kikelomo
I Plead the spirit of love to
Send wind and rain
Send light and ravens
Let them deliver my heavens
Wishes untold
To Legends reborn

Kikelomo,

I was lost
But now I'm found.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
