Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

My Purpose

To love you I would sacrifice
All my dreams and desires,
Because there is nothing about you
That I don't admire
To hold on to your love
And cherish the time I share with you
Please know that, I truly love you.
With every beat of my heart
And to the core of my soul
I waited all my life to feel this whole
Every memory of us
Makes me smile
It made all the waiting for you
Worth all the while
If I have met you the day before I died
I would have died complete
Because I know it was God's purpose
For the two of us to meet.
And now that we have met
And both still draw breath
It is my purpose that every night
On your chest I rest
While listening to your heart beat
In rhythym with mine.~~~
