Your Presence..... - Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

I vividly remember
The first time i layed
My eyes on you.

Your sparkling eyes
Captured my heart.

Your smile blinded me,
The only thing my
Eyes could see at that
Moment, was you.

Faster my heart
Was pumping.

That cold breeze,
Brushed my cheeks.
Just by looking at you,
My heart got satisfaction.

It was a begining
Of a long journey.

Hand in hand we greeted
The next morning.
Smiling with joy,
And life was sweet
Like honey.

Like expects, we
Negotiated our way
Through sunny and rainny days.

We sang with birds,
And cried with frogs.

Even butterflies danced
To the sounds of our

And the frogs
Sang to the melodies
Of our laughter.

Some days got
Extremely hot,
And some,
Extremely cold.

But your smile
never faded.

Astray i gone, and
Like a dog, with my
Tail between my legs,
i came back.

A warm hug welcomed
Me back.
And that genuine smile
Was still there.

My imperfections,
Proved your perfectness.

Though my grattitude
May not be as visible as
Snow white clouds on
The blue sky.

Never forget,
This brother will ever
Be grateful for
Your presence........
