Analysis of A letter to Her

Kelvin Gathiru 2001 (Nyandarua)

I've been thinking for hours,
If I will give you some tours,
Buy you gift or some flowers,
Or even take you to see towers,
Coz babes you give me powers.

With you my mind is set open,
Without you I feel like am frozen,
My love and feelings are awoken,
I don't need others for I am taken,
Never make me feel heartbroken.

I still love you even at a distance,
I miss you and I always remnisce,
About our love and the ambiance,
Our moments during our parlance,
Hun I really like giving you a glance.
