…..And Love Wept
(1965 / Abor, Volta Region, Ghana)

…..And Love Wept

the morning clouds have come
you were not in the shade

where were you

but
this is not why I’m here tonight
I’ve gathered the morning dew on my feet
hoping to catch descending tears
pretending they are hope's victory
over those sad truths
that made love wept

one day
you could spare these eyes
for seeing things
I wish they hadn’t
one day
you will sing to these lips
for saying things
I wish I was glad they did

till that time
I'll wait under morning cloud
for the savanna rains in the clouds
