Today seems like yesterday –
Walking side by side with you
Under the starry night,
As the moon shone its light.
In the Northern lands of Zaria,
We held hands and traded tales,
Of growing up days,
Of music, faith and love…
We knew neither night nor day,
For our conversation lingered,
With each one drawing me more to you.
Indeed, today seems like yesterday,
When I saw your beautiful smile,
For the first time
When I saw your long, thick, black hair
Glistening under the sun,
When I heard you sing,
Inviting heaven’s angelic host;
When I felt your warm embrace,
Making me feel safe.
Indeed, I look forward to tomorrow
For yesterday was great,
Today is amazing,
But I know our tomorrow will be perfect…
