If I could, I would make you see
Yourself through my eyes
How perfect you are
How special you are
People say you are one in a million
I say you are one in seven billion

You are one in seven billion
You are, you beautiful star
No one like you

A lone green sprout
In a parched field
The smell of rain in
The midst of drought

I am no Prince of Serendip
My life is not a Persian fairy tale

But from this day my heart will always skip
A beat and I know this much is true
'Cause I wasn't looking, yet I found you

You are Serendipity

It is the sparkle in your eyes
Not the curve of your lips
That smile in your eyes
The smile that never lies

Charming, tender
I'll always remember
The first time you smiled at me.

Like magnet to metal
Your smile draws me in
You taught me how to smile
Your smile; I hope it never dies
The kind of smile that comes from deep within.

In the morning, old becomes new
Birds sing as black slowly turns blue
In the morning, my fears are taken
My faith is stronger, I am not shaken

My fears are taken by morning's rebirth
Fresh as the dew clinging to my feet
In the morning, there is a new me to meet
Whom the blinding night has deemed fit to birth

In the morning, my flaws are still the same
Like the yellow sun, everyday like flame
In the morning, I remember yesterday's mistakes
And I know better what is at stake

In the morning, I let go of the night
I let go of the dark, I embrace the light
In the morning, my eyes are brighter
My dance is better, my laugh is lighter

My smile is warmer, my kiss is softer
My hug is tighter, my speech has no stutter
In the morning, I am all I want to be
Awake, refreshed, hopeful, free

Brilliant vision
Illuminating, enlightening, empowering
Light is beautifully radiant
My first cinquain poem
Ozioma Ogbaji Apr 2015
My love for you is sugar and spice
My love for you will cross rivers and skies
Your love will keep me safe at night
My love is with you day and night

Your love is sweet, your love is mild
Your love is true, your love is kind
Your love is sugar and spice
Your love is ***** and ice
To the love of my life...whoever he is, wherever he is. Haha
