Dedicated and written to the one who has captured my heart for internity; "Jitte Najomo". Thousands of miles of salt water and the endless dessert separate us but the thoughts of our love draw us even much closer.)


What is love without memories?

The smooth sensation of the soul

Devouring every thoughts of us

Engraved in the faith of our heart.


On this special day

My heart melts with yours

My thoughts, your thoughts to remember

And our love in the burning flame  that never ends


The night is cold

My heart desires to be with you

To kiss the warmth of your lips

And soak my tongue

In the fountain of your speech

To spa the smoothness of your neck

With the kindness of my lips

To open the door

With key, which you kept secret from all but me

To feel your intoxicating breathe

Just an inch from my face

That triggers my hormones,

Blasting away my masculinity


The night is still young

Couples leaning on each other

All I have to lean on

Are your thoughts, your memories?

With the last ink in my pen

I engrave you with the words of my heart

Not much written, but much to be said,

In this heart, filled with your love.
