The Mango Tree by Mgcini Nyoni

The mango tree flowers again
the seeds from last year
already germinated
into young trees
and I can still taste
last year’s fruit
in my mouth
The mango tree flowers again
and all I have
is just the memory
of you saying, I love you,
forever will
and your scent on my clothes
