IT COULD HAVE BEEN
IT COULD HAVE BEEN.
It always came to him as a new day,
He never came to that thought,
Time, weeks, months, years passed on,
Friends never changed or separated (friends bond),
Situations never showed future expectations,
It is today not yesterday,
And a lonely soul mumbles off,
‘’IT COULD HAVE BEEN’’.
Evolution takes it,
He/she, they, us, move around,
Its sunny days in its world,
Theirs it is monsoon periods,
They have joy; loneliness is the drink to cheer on,
It is it that the soul cries out loud for,
IT COULD HAVE BEEN still spreading around.
Life it is it that determines our next move,
Judge or judge not,
Be friends, have fun but our tomorrow might be different,
Rwanda, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, USA, Europe is our residence for now,
Ejo nzaba ndi ahandi abo twarikumwe suko mbanze,
Text me, contact me or send a letter,
Let what it was never change for separation- it’s life,
All it could have been, is stick around for each other,
Let the lonely soul mourn for those it forgot,
It could have been that and this it’s no more.
