Treasure Island

You are my treasure island;
My silver and gold;
My everything;
You put smiles on my face;
What would I be
Without you?
You are my oxygen;
The source of my strength;
If you leave me,
You impoverish me;
Being with me
You empower me;
You energize me.
You enrich me,
You are my treasure island.


Love beats all

Can we make today
A special day for us?
Let us meet privately,
Away from the crowd;
And see what direction
Things go;
Being by ourselves
Can be so palatable;
Nobody will disturb us;
We will focus on
The content of our hearts
Which we call love;
I will focus on you;
And you will focus on me;
Can there be a thing
More desirable?
Not, as far as I know.
Love beats all.
When you have love,
You have everything.

Let’s talk love

Let’s talk love today;
Lets spend our day
Talking love;
It will be a day
Well spent;
The love we’ll talk about
Is our love;
It’s not other people’s love;
Our love;
Let’s talk about
How we love each other;
You tell me
How you love me;
And I tell you
How I love you;
And then we hold
Our hands,
And stare at each other,
And get transported
By love
To a land we never imagined!
What do you think?
And what do you say?

A day of joy

This is a day
Of joy,
Not like other days;
Flying high up
In the sky;
Is our boy;
Just like a bird;
With the wings
Of a kite,
He flies;
As I look at him,
Flying so high,
I feel so happy
It’s not daily,
That someone flies
As high as he does
In the sky.
So special is this day;
I can never forget;
But will remember
All my life;
And celebrate
As a day of joy;
When my boy flew
So high
In the sky.

Wisest decision ever

Do you know
The wisest decision
Ever made?
Do you know
The wisest decision
Someone can make?
Do you know
The wisest decision
You can ever make?
I know;
The wisest decision
That someone has ever made,
Is the wisest decision
That you can ever make;
It is the wisest decision
That someone can make.
It is to say “Yes!”
To God when He calls.
God is always calling;
If you listen,
You will hear His voice
Calling out to you.
If you say “Yes, Lord,
Here, I am;
I am ready to do what
You want,”
That would be
Your wisest decision
Of your life.
Every “Yes” to God
Is the wisest decision.

Smile, my dear! (New love poem 26 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Smile, my dear,
And do so broadly,
With cheer;
Don’t frown;
Don’t wear
That dirty frowny look
On your face;
It doesn’t go well;
What’s perfect,
Is a smile!
When you smile,
You pull down the fence
Round my heart,
And you can see me
Star at you
With teary eyes of love
Never before known.

To love and be loved

A young man once laughed
So loudly at me;
When I expressed my love
For someone;
He asked what I was saying;
I replied that I was in love;
That my need to love
And be loved is yearning;
There is no age to love;
And no age not to love;
That the young love;
And the old love as well;
That we are all here to love;
That when you are born,
Until you die,
You have a strong need
To love
And be loved.
He listened attentively,
And got my point.
