Reminiscence - Poem by Norman Mukwakwami

Many a dark night,
I have gazed at the stars and thought of you.
Ruminating on memories
On haunting images
On the melody of your voice

Many a dreary afternoon
I have gone through your photos and thought of you.
Nostalgia
A rush of blood,
First to my head,
Then to my heart.

Many a breezy evening,
I have listened for your voice in the howling wind.
Sought your face in the moon-lit clouds.
Sought your scent in the tropical air.
Anything to remind me of you.
