Sweet Memories by Susan Chikomba

Promises of heaven on earth
Whatever I asked for
Pleasant surprises the order of the day
My worries were his too
Suspicions brushed away
Replaced by profound happiness
At sun set we would set our journey to still places
Where still waters flow, washing away our differences
Where birds lend us their melody
Silence heralded the night out for two
Indeed nature rallied behind this youthful relationship
How could I be an exception?
I too, was compelled to work out to enrich this “us”
He also seemed, sounded and felt itching to have the “us” last forever
Together we were more than just love conquerers
We were each other’s true destiny
Separation never skipped my mind
I believed in “us”
I had faith in us lasting for eternity
Yet these are now mere sweet memories
The “us” is no more!
