I am a big fan of Mr. Princewill’s work. I posted an excerpt from his previous work – Memoirs of Love here. His new release; “Pale Echoes” is even more awesome. Here’s an excerpt from it – a poem. It’s titled “Love’s Words”. If you like the poem below, download Pale Echoes.
Why do you call your beloved “honey”?
Is it just another metaphor?
Or is it because the one you love
Is sweet to you, sweeter than words indeed?
Why do you call him “sweetheart”?
Is it just an old cliché?
Or is it because your love
Has engulfed his heart and soul
And you are the sole benefactor
Of that beautiful love?
Why do you call her “baby”?
Is it because you heard the word
In the lyrics of your favorite love song?
Or because she is so precious and divine in your very eyes
That even the slightest sneeze
Invokes your undivided attention?
Love fills our mouths with words and phrases
And touches our lips with incense and sweet fragrances
But to use those words without the required motion
Would be like trying to fly without wings.
It is never enough to speak
We must act, with fervor and resilience.
Let love animate you
To acts of sacrifice and true compassion
And you will see and experience beauty beyond
What words can utter or lips can sing.
So say the words
And live the action
And let love birth paradise
For you and the one you love.
