Life Hits You... - Poem by Phumelelo Shalelo Simelane

Once upon a time
I came across a time
Where I had to close
My eyes and Imagine

Imagine the beauty of the stars
After the moon had tucked
The sun into bed

In front of me stood
Beauty in its Meaningless form
Yet more valuable then
Beauty itself

Heaven on earth
I never knew
Until I met a girl crafted
With such care
I opened my eyes
Reality kicked in

That the girl of my dreams
Was Living in another mans dream
