We were friends
We were lovers
I was there, when she got admission to the university,
I was there, when she finished with distinction in accounting,
I was there, when she got her first job
I was there, when she got her first car
I slept on the hospital bed, holding close
When she was involved in an accident and comatose for weeks
I was there, when her eyes fluttered open,
And I kissed her to moistened her lips
I held her hand tightly giving her my strength during her first labour
I promised he will be our last child even though we had four more
And I promised the same thing every time
I was there when she got cancer at 40
And her breast cut off and hair shaved.
I was there for her at all times
She, she was there when I got admission into the university
She and her friends carried me to the hospital,
When I got shot during a cult fights
We spent our first salaries together
She was there, when I bought my house
She was there, when I got diagnosed with diabetes
And she walked with me through depressions into light
She was there for me.
On our last days,
We spent each waking minute together,
Each of us savored each second we spent together as if it was our last
Death came to both of us together as we lay in each other’s arm
But even death failed to separate us
For the light of our love will ever be present in the stars.
