Dreamy Love

Written by: Charles Mwalimu

I went swimming in the Notwane River,
And took a plunge on the cool waters
Resurfacing only to take a deep breath,
And feel the cool air above
Then, BOOM! I saw you!

Your face, the radiance of mankind
That killed my breathing, paralyzing my heart
The beating of my heart, so faint
As to be almost imperceptible
Everything swam before my eyes!

When I saw you, and saw love,
And envisioned the joys of the world
That we’d have together
If we give love a chance to lead us
Onto the day of our union…d
