You Have Gone [collaboration with award winner Donald Kuutsi]

[Donald Kuutsi]

Another day, another month,
Another year, Another smile,
Another tear,
But they will never another you again
Gazing at the red candles
Glowing at the dinner table,
The light is fading just like moments passing,
l have tried to masticate the food and swallowing it but l cant,
How can l without you ony my side...
l cant believe it you are gone, out of my sight for ever,
l wish l could stop time like a photograph,
l would have reversed the relm of time into my hands and hold u tight in my arms so that u wont leave me

[Gaylord Munemo]

An empty house, an empty home
An empty life, an empty time,
An empty song, an empty rhyme
Gazing at the passing wind through my window,
I discover myself in solitude like a lonely widow,
On my linen bed I only see one pillow,
I wonder why you have went far away,
In my mind is a storm of resurrecting moments,
Bringing realisations, it could have been better together,
My arms holding the memories of things we did,
My mind the essence of things we hoped for,
The hope we never lived,
The memories we never kept for long

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
