ALANI! ONLY HEAVEN KNOWS YOU ARE INNOCENT – Flourish Joshua

ALANI! ONLY HEAVEN KNOWS YOU ARE INNOCENT

All the times my brothers

Accused you of killing their only sister

And the times you were

Humiliated, I see from Heaven.

All the times you were almost

Striped naked and were made

To pick and lick libation

And confess you didn’t kill me,

I see from Heaven.

ALANI, there’s nothing you

Can do about it.

No one would believe you are innocent

Because, I had all the fame and money,

But you were richly wretched.

And everytime you tried to mention

That you love me,

You were being shut up

By whoever was listening.

I’m sorry that you go through

All those pains for my sake.

I’m sorry too that I had to rush home

Shortly after our wedding.

You’ll be fine.

ALANI, you need not to pick

Yourself a wife.

Else, you endanger her

And end your life in danger;

For I shall visit you everyday.

In your sleep. In your dreams.

We’d resume our love play,

We’d tour the dreadful roads

Of the village together,

We’d take our bath

In the salty water of Apoyin River,

And seek the troubles of the bees thereafter.

Together, we’d run errands for Grandma

And would break kolanuts for Baba ‘Sesan;

And you’d smile from your sleep again

Into full awakening…

…because, only Heaven knows you are innocent.

ALANI, your beloved Adebanke

Sees you through the eye of Heaven.

She hasn’t left you

Amidst the abyss of lamentations.

She’ll visit you in a while.
