Do not leave me
by Tijjani Grema Mustapha
A life without you has no meaning. Sadness, boredom and loneliness will be the seasons of the world without you. Don't go, because my living soul is begging and pleading for your stay. Unpack your belongings and arrange them on the wall of my heart. You're not leaving the world, but being out of my life seems like you're taking a journey to the space. Don't leap or hide from my world. Bury yourself under the shed of love and tend to me with your care and concern. Do not leave me now and forever. Do not leave me even when my soul is stolen. Whisper a word of death to me when your time has come. Notify me and we shall travel to the other world together. Do not leave me and I shall not leave you.
