Never Let Me Go

oh, how I long for days and nights
when the world was kind, when birds
sang melodious hymns of nature in perfect
harmony, with the towering trees and perfect hues of stunning verdant hills

so, come hold my hand
and let’s take a walk,
a walk back in time

oh, how I long for days and nights
of undending silence, solitude, and peace
when we were enveloped by nature’s
loving presence, when we could take a quiet walk, a joyful stroll, a glorious saunter

so, come hold my hand
and let’s take a walk,
a walk back in time

oh, how I long for days and nights
of triumphant laughters, unrestrained talks,
lively discussions with friends and family
over lunch or alfresco dining,
in a party – like atmosphere

so, come hold my hand, tighter,
and never let me go

For Sadjie’s
