Young and Beautiful

Young and Beautiful

It’s probably something that I’ve said, she laughs so loudly. For a moment no longer is her smile frayed, but in joy her mouth opens so widely.

“You remember our wild days?” I ask her in love and in bliss, she looks aside in a haze, “you old bloke don’t remind me please…”

She looks away, pretty young Flora, we lived in our heyday, when we were both strong and taller.

Suddenly she laughs again, I peer her way. “You never did take me to see Jomo’s cane…” amidst a playful giggle she manages to say.

Loudly and abruptly I too laugh, even after all these years her mischief still gets me, her love still hangs tough, since I proposed on one bended knee.

Knowingly she laughs in turn, pretty young flora, we were lovers under the sun, when we were both strong and taller.

I still love her, pretty young Flora, even more now that she is still young and beautiful.

 

In commemoration of a life well lived;  Sarafine Wanjiru Njoroge; Left us as she went to meet God, on the mountain where his light beckons yonder

  1. On the death of a friend..we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living..that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend’s life also, in our own, to the world..Godspeed Sarafine,a life lived fuller.May you rest in peace,till next time, when we meet again.
