For Yomi, a Sonet.

19 Sep

So to what in nature shall I compare you?
What should come to mind as I think of thee?
A humming bird which out the window flew?
An eagle soaring high and wild and free?
Sometimes I sit and give it all a thought
Did we sign a pact, enter a contract?
Like a student in class answers I sought
My hand of friendship I cannot retract
Sit you here and let me tell a story
Chronicle valiant men and days of yore
Your name enshrined deep in this history
Your heart is gold, you cast out Phobetor
As sunrises East and sets in the West
So shall friendship continue without rest


Dedicated to my very dear friend Oluyomi Adegboye because his voice is always in my head :p

p.s I chose a sonet for Yomi because I think the structure of a sonet is rhythmic…and he has a certain rhythm to him…almost like a song 🙂

Get up early to sow your seed and in the evening fiind worthwhile things to do. For you never know which will profit you-maybe this, maybe that, maybe both. – Eccl 11:6 3 The Voice

      My sister! The rhythm unplugged caught my attention too. I’m slightly jealous because Abigail is confident this friendship will last forever. Meanwhile my own… Sighs.

      I like Yomi because he’s a counsellor lol
