I Am Happy
Yesterday, l sat with a face
by Francis Kokutse
that could scare away the lion;
it was grim and pregnant with worries
and it did give me heavy heart because
there was so much that had weighed
me down and would not leave me.
But my today has come with
a brightness that l do not understand
my heart feels light and there is so
much songs on my lips that l feel
l am floating on top of the clouds.
I have looked in the mirror and found
that the grim looks that sent my spirit
so low have also gone and made
me look a newly born soul.
Afafanto has done this to me
she has sent through the clouds
something that l cannot imagine
and given me a disease that
brings happiness and joy.
For the joy you have brought to me
Afafanto, may you receive more joy
from me; may you never have cause
to regret what you have done to me;
may you remain to cherish the day
you surfed on the cyber seas and found
none other but me; may we remain
the only two people that the world
would talk about.
