Spirit - Poem by Isunge Mwangase

I trekked to a far, faraway land,
Where lived rainbow hearts that
Loved with a beautiful eeriness,
These hearts loved with an echo,
The sweetest melody of silence

At a unique frequency to but two
Hearts, nothing else intrude could,
No gazing to others but themselves,
No gossip to peer into their open ears,
Only love and more love after love

One heart would whisper, ' I love you'
And the reply would be, ' I love you.'
In this they knew all was a waterfall,
Of course all this I was but only told,
I was new in the land, my heart too

But I am a loving man and love did I,
Her light rubbed on me- mine on her,
As candles that you may know as stars,
And we lived until we outlived time,
It is rumored we outgrew him too

But as all things, nothing lasts forever,
All things of dust to dust must return,
Blessed are they whose hearts break
For though not whole the pieces are,
When my love died, my heart- it burst.
