I Had Noticed Suddenly - Poem by Gert Strydom

(for my wife Daleen)

I had noticed suddenly today
that the whole world was turning grey,
and my heart felt ripped to pieces, as if it was bitter
while outside some birds still did twitter

and deep in sleep you were gone
still a part of the lingering darkness of night
while lonely the moon had shone
and some little stars was the only other light

until the morning came and you smiled at me
and the sheer beauty of your radiant face I did see.
