YOUR LONELY NIGHT
by Jared Kipkosgei Lagat
I haven't forgotten
Your lonely night;
I had said goodbye -
I never wanted us to be friends again.
I turned off my phone,
Never did I want to have a word with you again -
A sole good-bye.
It was all you could say -
But I was no longer on the line.
How many messages of reconciliation did you send?
How could you express your inner heart?
You longed to be with me again;
But, was I not asleep?
