BIRTHDAY POEM FOR A CHILDHOOD FRIEND
To the faraway land I went
Years ago to search for fortune,
Yet I seem not to forget,
The memories of my childhood.
Laughter grips me each time I recall,
How we met and accentuated.
My face broadens with smile,
When your picture appears on my head.
Glory glory, today you’re plus one,
We saw you grow and becoming mature,
For sure we’d together make it,
To make Africa a better place.
My wish for you is success,
Greatness and everlasting grace,
So be it, I pray,
Amen in God’s name.
I am Emmanuel
