We’re OK


Every memory, at the centre or the side
You; smiling, daring, laughing, playing, having fun,
How did we miss it, the demons at your heels, those three winter spells
You; crying, hiding, lying, smoking, hurting, daring, with that gun
You called it quits, had your say
Me; crying, hurting, missing, smoking, drinking, at once undone
Cut me deep, numbed me like the bleached winter grass that fateful day

2 decades on, time has soothed the pain,
Photos faded yellow pale, though the scars remain
Made my choice today: I’ll let you go, rest in peace…
I’m OK, I’m OK!

  1. Psa 116:15 Kosbaar is in die oë van die HERE die dood van sy gunsgenote. Want God het ‘n ewigheidsvisie en sy gunsgenote is altyd kosbaar vir Hom, of dit in lewe of dood is. Sy gunsgenote lewe tot in ewigheid saam met Hom.
