Still To Decide - Poem by Adolf Baloyi

Crying alone in the rain
Hoping for the stars
For the sunshine has gone
How I hope there was a dwelling place for the loneliness

For her spirit departed from the flesh and I am all alone
How I wish I had wings like birds
For I would fly away and dissipate in the midst of the sky

How unkind can the universe be?
To expect me to be all smiles when a part of me has undertaken an unplanned spiritual journey
Oh' my darling, I will not shed a tear
For the angels of love have welcome her soul and the skies bear witness
