Tea without sugar (poem No 53 to my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Don’t leave me;
Don’t stop loving me;
Don’t say you are
Not mine again;
Are you mine for ever?
Will you be mine
Till the sun moves
From the sky
To the earth?
You are sugar in my tea;
Without you
My life is like tea
Without sugar:
What use is tasteless tea?
