    For Adebola

    Cherish, here am I bidding to profess
    Your beauty within a sonnet confines;
    But I doubt I can in some words express
    What cannot be said in a thousand lines.
    Corporeal beauty is common in truth,
    But beyond that, you have a lovely heart
    And of the many souls I've met, in sooth,
    Dear, your beautiful soul sets you apart.
    This sonnet is so simple - just like you
    But I can only hope that like the moon
    Or like the rose, it's striking like you too;
    My quills cannot ask for a better boon.
    Adebola, here's my pray'r for you today:
    May you grow old in wealth with a heart gay.
