Hi guys! it’s a brand new day here in blogsville!
You can probably tell from the silhouette above what todays poem is going to be about. One out of many I
may have used to serenade my significant other.
It’s my 2nd year wedding anniversary today and I couldn’t think of a better day to put this up. I absolutely love writing about love… It’s one of the few times my words flow like ink inside a pen.
I love you
Actually I don’t …
I’m in love with you
I breathe you
I crave you
I want you every minute
Your very existence
The happiness you bring
The pain we share
You are my “olójó“
The one who owns my day
It is because of you
I was named “Moróunmúbò“
Because I really have found something
Not only have I found something
Yes, my sweetness
Adé tó sí ònà fún mi
Gradually, I am finding my way
Finding my place
I love you
You’re my destiny
As I yours
Every moment in our lives
This it has led to
** olójó – Yoruba word that means ‘one who owns the day’.
** Moróunmúbò – Yoruba name that means ‘gift’ (literal meaning – I have found something to bring).
** Motúnrountódùn – Yoruba name that means ‘I have found something worthy’ (literal meaning – I have found something sweet).
** Adé tó sí ònà fún mi – Translated into English (from Yoruba) that means ‘The crown that led the way’.
** marito – Italian word for husband.
Writing this made me so happy…. I hope you were able to empathise with me on this one.
And to my amazing husband and father of our incredible child, I pray we spend many more happy years today. I’ll be waiting for you by the door with a thousand love-filled kisses lol
PS: Thank you to my mum who helped me with the correct meaning of the Yoruba words in this poem!
Thank you as always for reading!!!
