Mother's Love

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we have dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.
Michael Olakunle Adesanya




Rainbows would never be rainbows
If sunshine had never met rain
No one would ever need comfort
If there was no sadness and pain
But life holds both sunshine and showers.

The days are not all bright and fair
So look through the showers for the rainbows
You will always find hope shining there.
Michael Olakunle Adesanya



The dirty thirties

I needed to talk to somebody
and there was no one to talk to
except the wind.

When the heaven are bright,
With the light of the glittering stars;
Have I stood there amazed?
And asked as I gazed,
If their glory exceeds; that of ours,

Way down upon the river Niger
Far, far away
There is where my heart is turning ever;
The entire world is sad and dreary
Everywhere I roam, there is
Where the old folks stay.

When will I be with
my dream for the future?
All up and down the sad
creation sadly I roam
Darling, how my heart grows weary
Far from the old folks at home
when will I be fanned by the winds of love?
Michael Olakunle Adesanya

Friends Without Faces

We sit and we type,
And we stare at our screens...
We all have to wonder
What this possibly means.
With our mouse we roam
Through the rooms in a maze,
Looking for something or someone,
As we sit in a daze.

We chat with each other,
We type all our woes...
Small groups we do form,
And gang up on our foes.
We wait for somebody
To type out our name...
We want recognition,
But it's always the same.

We give kisses and hugs,
And sometimes flirt...
In IM's we chat deeply and
Reveal why we hurt.
We do form friendships,
But why we don't know...
But some of these friendships,
Will flourish and grow.

Why is it on screen?
We can be so bold,
Telling our secrets that
Have never been told.
Why is it we share?
The thoughts in our mind
With those we can't see,
As though we were blind.

The answer is simple,
It is as clear as a bell.
We all have our problems
And need someone to tell.
We can't tell real people,
But tell someone we must...
So we turn to the 'putter
And to those we can trust.
Even though it is crazy,
The truth still remains...
They are Friends without Faces
And odd little names.
Michael Olakunle Adesanya
