Remembrance - Poem by Masa MbathaOpasha


I searched the universe inside out
For the silhouette of your eyes
I travelled from earth to heaven and back
Tracing the rhythm of your fingers on my skin
I played hide and seek with angels and gods
Hoping to find you somewhere
In their distracted looks and moods
Like a fantasy not yet ready to be born
I loved you with every soothing drop
Of the tender self called I
Then one day, on a lazy autumn dawn
You said hello from a laughing pillow of a clown
Your voice had the same essence of dreams
You touched me with the crystal light of the stars
My soul glowed like a moon in the woods
Indicating the path to your heart
I still sigh deeply when the memories roll open
The mental embrace of your name
