Poem: On Your Birthday

By: Geosi Gyasi


(To A Wife To Be)

The dream is almost vivid
mid-night dream in a bed of water
guess which present you represent?
The clue to my dream is in your dream
On this day I cease to give any promises
Whilst my dream melts into sweet water
I’ll pour you a glass to taste of it
You shall drink to the joy of a decade of
Swimming in a pool of love
This day I will make it special than ever
And surprise you once I hold you by the arm
Swim deep to the far places where I shall cast my net
And show you this golden ring I bought
With my whole life’s savings.
