Gaylord Munemo

Rookie - 85 Points (20 May 1991 / Masvingo)

Along came my lover

In my journey in the mountains,
Wind blew my optimism away,
The sunlight melted my hopes
The sharp rocks sliced my wishes,
In my deepest despair,
Along came my darling

In my tour to victory in the sea,
The water dissolved my positivity,
The salt relished my anxiety,
The waves waved my ego away,
Shipwrecked in the middle of nowhere,
Along came my lover

In my journey through the forest,
Lions hungered for my talents,
The vultures waited upon my sweat,
The fox tricked me again,
I was left just a prey,
But along came my lover

In my journey from the youth,
Heading towards adulthood,
Some stole my trust,
Some robbed my faith,
I went on my knees again,
A light sparkled from above,
I was back on my feet,
Along came my lover
