I remember it all, what they say
That Nyonjo would always remain
Stuck in a heart's corner, so they say
And for long I tried and tried but all in vain
She was still that special, and I denied it Nyonjo
That she did not get stuck like the tune on a banjo

I remember it all, her smile, the lines of her lips
The trace of her bright eyes and the curvy of her hips
The glow of her cheeks and her falling back hair
And I wish she would still hold things dear
The lining of her collar bone, and her flashing teeth-white
The gait she holds herself with and the esteem she holds quite

After all this long, after all this song, I ask what went wrong
I still remember, that one day in December, her beauty in amber
And it's true what they say Nyonjo is nyonjo
And her place will remain here Nyonjo

Other poems of K SSEKAJJA


The silence was there
And she held it higher
And we all watched the space
To know, and face

The Eagle

The eagle flew by my head
And I know Every tide has it's ebb
And this thought is there
To heckle

I Held The Wire

So shall i tell her of the time
The glorious moment of the rhyme
In that same day i held the wire
She, with such a chance borrowed the fire

So For Once

Well, light is for bright
When the mighty can't write
For what pun is in the sun
When noon can't great dawn

They Look Down On Us

The sun did surely cross the mantel
And every thing having been held
None of us could break the wall
And this bliss being such bitter made

Travel With Me

Travel with me pretty maiden
That skies may speak our mother-tongue
Hold my hand a little,
For when men close their eyes
