Lifetime Gifts

By Ayieko Jakoyo


Fortune made us meet

Under the bright moon light

Timid we gave a shy look

As our soft hands shook

Then a natural force held us tight

Giving us this nice look


Many are the gifts

But few are the gifts that stay

We are gifts of own kind

That is what I can say

Hold your gown and wisper to me

You are a gift that stay


Today we stand

At this holy raised ground

Giving out lifetime vows

“Yes I do” is the word

Stand strong, look into my face

Then wisper to me

For we are the lifetime gifts

Ayieko Jakoyo is a seasoned writer and a poet in both English and Kiswahili(Ushairi). Having learnt in a rural or rather village primary and secondary school, I took my time to interact with various people in the society based on age and gender. My writing has been shaped by the daily occurances in the typical African society My literary star was lit and brightened by the famous poet Robert Frost. I loved his wordplay and how he addressed concrete issues through poetry. I always lived to write and sell out as he did in his time. I deeply got into writing when my article "Girl child's plea" did well in the 2009 National music festival for secondary schools. When I joined The university of Eldoret, I joined the C. O. F. F. E. E which is an association for the lovers of art and the BRIDGE campus magazine. Since then my poetry is doing well on various platforms. I have also joined jubilant stewards of Africa and I am looking forward to give my readers the best. Check my wordpress, for more articles. Find me on Fb as Ayieko Jakoyo And twitter as Jakoyo_jnr
