She Called Him Mine….


They loved so much,

That a blind could see it.

The fruits of their love,

Was quite clear to me.

She called him mine,

And he called her Nkem,

Which also meant mine.

They were each others backbone,

One couldn’t go where

The other would not go.

And this way they stayed together,

From their youthfulness,

To their greying years.

Till death stole Mine away from Nkem.

Now, I watch my mother flounder,

Without my dad by her side.

    • Deborah I always love seeing older couples who have been through it all. It gives me personal joy and also sadness when they have to struggle along when one passes on. Thank you for sharing about your parents with me 🙂


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
