Long, Long Ago There Were Two People [2] - Poem by Gert Strydom

Long, long ago there were two people (just you and me)
and to my remorse my life was empty without you
and I couldn’t get you out of my heart.

I visited you and Shaun
and he was dressed
in a yellow jersey and dark green pants

and we married and was then divorced
and it was my wish to embrace you again.
Long, long ago there were two people (just you and me)

and I was trapped like an animal in a corner
not aware that you loved me still
and he was dressed

as if for a visit from me
and to me his eyes were bright blue
and I couldn’t get you out of my heart

and to me your life were only based on pleasure
still you are the one that looks into my deepest soul
and I did not know that you loved me still

and it looked as if you still wanted to be free from me
and did not know that you still liked me.
Long, long ago there were two people (just you and me)

and nobody I can compare to you,
with you that really understand me
still you are the one that looks into my deepest soul

with whom I wanted take life on,
the one around whom my feelings doesn’t fade
and I couldn’t get you out of my heart,

but then my life went on without direction
and you astounded me,
with you that really understand me,

I drove thousands of miles from you,
believed that your loved had forever withered away.
Long, long ago there were two people (just you and me)
and I couldn’t get you out of my heart

and our lives did touch each other’s.
I visited you and Shaun
and you astounded me,
in a yellow jersey and dark green pants.
