Moffat Mbuzi Poems
Without permission loneliness visited
and settled in my heart,
So cruel to the heart it took over control,
It made me envy other souls with mates.
For mine hasen't one to care for;
I sleep with my heart awake,
I dream the dreams of sorrow,
I scream in the middle of the night.
And I wake but only to find myself without nobody,
Is my soul a kind of a soul without a mate?
No one to love and nobody to love me,
I watch and behold pairs of lovers strolling
My eyes drown in sympathy;
I cry in total silence.
I need some one to care for, ...
My Lifetime Is Too Short
Inside your abode comes the perfume of paradise,
As fragrant as a nest of roses,
Indeed you're as beautiful as beauty itself;
In my heart forever I shall keep you.
I shall keep you not away from my heart,
But I'm scared my lifetime is too short for loving you.
When I'm low- you comfort me,
