Parting - Poem by Daniel Sangulukani Chibaka
What more can we say,
But say goodbye.
Farewell with cheer my fair lady,
Tomorrow we'll say we tried.
Our journey ends here,
Let us depart partially satisfied.
And hold your head
While others throw mock.
It seems we were never destined
To grow a love to last
Against the gale winds of life;
Oh how we surrender at an impasse.
Halting at coarse crossroads,
And from this point we depart.
You take your love, I'll have mine
And we'll nurture our own hearts.
It is not without pain,
I bid you a bitter goodbye.
There's a sting in my chest,
as I wave with dry eyes.
With a slight sorrow in my step,
And a breath with a heavy sigh.
you won't elude me with ease,
Even, should tomorrow decide I die.
I do not leave ignorant,
Such a love I do not know.
My heart can no longer dress naivety,
Your bit of love has helped me grow.
You opened my eyes to truth,
And explained what I saw.
And I pray that my love has you enlightened,
Or at most nursing a gentle glow.
Our decision, this decision,
I should state: I had my doubts.
Preferring the butterflies fly in the light,
By turning my innards inside out.
At this crossroads, what more can we say
May He be a refuge and strength,
providing for all your needs.
Me, I will embrace my road
And see where it leads.
So if it be in His will,
I hope, pray, that our roads will again meet.
