Our Bed - Poem by Doreen Maphosa

I remember when we used to lie here
Lovebirds, fortune brought us together
I remember when it felt like we had been together forever
Believers, nothing could have torn us apart
We made that bed, and we couldn't have lain anywhere else

I lie on it still
And its strange how strange it feels now
You lie on it still
And its strange how disconnected it feels
Strangers, fate is testing us to the core
Believers, we hold on to shaking faith

We lie on it still
How I wish you didn't make this one bed, my love
You lie next to me, and I can't find you
I haven't changed positions, but you can't see me
Its cold here, but I'm too proud to reach for your warmth
You made the bed, and we lie in it
How I wish you didn't make this one bed, my love
