Vain Hope - Poem by Vangile Mtyali

I kept on believing
Believing you would come back
I kept on believing
I would see you
When I turn my back
I kept on believing
I would hear your voice
Or get a call from you
I kept on believing
That you still exist
And that you still here with us
I kept on believing
I would wake up and realize that it was all a dream
And that you not gone
But No!
You are gone
I find it hard to let you go
I did see you walking out that door
I did see your coffin going underground
But still I couldn't believe
That you are gone
I did say my last goodbyes
But still
I can't seem to stop
Believing that you still exist
To me you not gone
In reality you are gone
Hope one day I will let you go
But it’s so hard
I loved you so much
and still Do
