The Past and Now


We have lived a life
Of bloom in the past
What binds us together
Is our hope of everlasting life
We have shared the most basic thing in life
From the sponge to the common towel
And from soap to toothpaste
We have done what we are known for-
Witnessing on the street, houses and villages
We have eaten what we like best-
Coconut and roasted maize
Nothing did put us apart
Not even a contagious diseases
Even in those days we slept on the same bed
When you were troubled I did understand
Two happy moments in your life
I was not there but you did understand
I know our differences-
You are tall and I'm short
You're married with a child and I'm yet to
But we still cling on as never before

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
