Wipe your Tears by Shola Balogun

Child, let your eyelids gleam
Like a thousand suns.
tears01_400Let your smiles radiate
Like the stars
In the sky at night.

The comeliness of your voice
Is more graceful
Than the nightingale’s song.

Wipe your tears,my lovely one,
There is always
A new dawn tomorrow.
