Poem: The 5 Million Naira Engagement Ring


I cried when I heard you were in the hospital

The news on my heart was a heavy toll

A thousand and one thoughts passing through my mind

I had no idea what I would find.

I was shocked by the scene my eyes did meet

This couldn’t possibly be you draped in a sheet

This couldn’t be you being wheeled down the corridor

Attached to a tube and a monitor.

I thought I would meet her nursing you back to health

By your side constantly asking how you felt

She who you laboured and built your world around

was now absolutely nowhere to be found.

I still remember the day of your engagement

How you laughed and danced around the garden

The smile on your face as you greeted everyone

Who would have thought you would now be alone.

Now the doctor wants to speak with the family

I call her up so she can accompany me

He tells us the news we fear to hear

As I console her, I notice her ring finger is bare.
