Poetry, Tale Africa

I wrote this for you…

By Percy Matlala, South Africa:

Listening and dancing to this melody

Thoughts came through, passed by so to say

Remembering our journey, a while back, just me and you

When you meant a great deal to me

When the smile on your face, brightened my days

When even my own words couldn’t explain it better

So it all became tears down my face,

Dropping to the water flowing under the bridge

And changing its colour to sorrows

I cried, trust me I did

We didn’t move to better places, we just grow older and clearer

We don’t have a perfect life; we just don’t care anymore, because there’s really nothing better life could throw at us

And I suppose it doesn’t have to make sense now

And I suppose we all tasted our moments of glade grace

All you can do at this moment is smile back,

With your head held up high,

And pride, and pain, and better hopes, for a better new journey, a fair one.
