Poem about a girlfriend who is leaving for the university. The boy couldn't buy her a gift but he writes her a poem.

Learning Curve

© Buchi Mekwunye

Sweet Sadness
A sadness I see now
A grief I can barely bear
The sweet I'll learn later
You're going, that of learning
I'm learning from your going
I couldn't buy you a gift
But I write you this gift
To engraved in your heart
An evocative of this love
You go but to return
You go but without your love
Leave it with me
I leave mine with you
Learn the books
Let me learn to love you from afar
From that distance
Speak love to me
Speak forever to me
Speak goodbye now
I love you
