Otareri Enoh Samuel – A Friend

By  | 

FRIEND

He was a friend of love

He was a friend of letters

He believed love from above

And gripped he was its fetters

In its throes he basked

Going nowhere fast

 –

He was a friend of Pat

He was a friend for letters

 –

He was whole before he fell

She was hole where he fell

And believing he was better

She let him bask in the throes

Of love that has grown cold

 –

She begins to leave him

Just when he began to live her

But the letters, they won’t let him be

For they were words he told her

 –

His friend was Pat

But she loved another

Otareri Enoh Samuel
