Twilight of Symphonies

John Chinaka Onyeche


It has been a decade ago 
when we had our first dance. 
In what took the semblance of, 
crepuscular happenstance. 

On this floor of whither 
once dwelled memories, 
of our favourite symphonies fiddled.
Despairs of the time past dissipate 
in every chord, our joy struck 
on the keynote of our hearts. 

Love rebirth and rolled out 
like the rivers of the Nile, 
flowing to eternity. 

Love found in the heart of 
two wanderers on earth. 
A walk-in on a twilight, 
our love re-echoes hope 
and life at the end.
