The Book Of Love

By Percy Matlala, South Africa:

The book of love
“Inspired by Peter Gabriel’s song, The book of love”

The book of love, is long and boring,
And written very long ago
But there's so much it holds
It’s like watching the night sky
And viewing the past

But I …
I loved it when you read to me
And you….
You can read me anything The smiles we paint,
The happy tears we once had on our faces
And the moments that will forever be in history books, our hearts.

But I…
I loved it when you sang for me
And you…
You can sing me anything

Life, flowers, and heart-shaped boxes
Things we are all too young to know of
Now shall we sign our names in this book
And only I hope the one lying next to you
Loves the pilgrim soul in you.

But I…
I loved it when you gave me things
And I…
I was about to get us wedding rings

“The book of love, is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts, facts and figures,
And instruction for loving”
