Above Me The Stars Do Stretch Light Years Away - Poem by Gert Strydom

(to Minette)

Above me the stars do stretch light years away
it's as if the darkness does separate us
and somewhere in my heart you are still bonded to me
but that which had been has passed in this life.

In the sudden breeze I want to catch fresh air
around me beetles sing, doves coo in the night
and still I am caught in your web
it is as if I am waiting on you to come,

as your heart is attached to mine,
I see a bolt of lightning touching the earth,
do smell the rain that falls suddenly
and does splash down in a stream

but it's only thoughts of you
when on the porch I look into the night,
I see the tar shining, washed clean
and in vain I am clinging to that which had been between us.

I tried to remember you
but you are gone.
