The Apple Of My Eyes
The apple of my eyes, that’s what you are
My treasured one, the best bird I can have
Ruined and marred by the fall that kept you far
Yet I longed daily for you my first love
Wondering and pondering which day you will come
Waiting and looking for my broken dream
To come into my garden and bosom
I looked here and there even in the stream
Prepared a sumptuous meal for you and I
But there, vacant remained your seat and place
Gone for so long, I kept asking, ‘Why, Why?’
When will you return and show me your face
No one, nothing can take your place beloved
For you any mountain I would have moved
Again the rhyming scheme used here is the abab cdcd efef gg
Coming And Going
Coming and going just searching for you
Ravished then famished, taken breath away
I went to heaven and then hell for you
Why summer and winter on the same day?
My joy, my jewel, you’re my reason for being
Your smile is the sun that will dry my tears
Come take my arms, I will give anything
Why do you run? What, my love are your fears?
A new leaf I will turn, eyes just for you
A new song I will sing, ’Just two of us’
O, come home, come home, I badly need you
Without you, I will be at a great loss
Come into my fold, O love that’s gone cold.
Truly, to me, you will ever be gold.
Now, over to you. Have a go.
You can achieve it if you conceive it and believe it.
