A Sad Ending

by Gideon Mutai

For several times he stayed alone

Ill relationships he could not condone

Many at times he went on his knees

I know someone somewhere is saying geez

He did that for the reason of true love

That in seasons unknown would be a glove


In many relations he could not last

Who knows maybe he was not of their class?

But truth be said he was caring enough

As through the ups and downs he remained tough

Some said he was too churchy in quotes

In that I’ll not want to take votes


To me he confided his secrets dark

For that I want to make a remark

Many ladies were nice to him

And to impress, his beard he would trim

One problem I need to mention

He had what doctors call hypertension


“It is over between us from today”

He got from flowers present a bouquet

‘Twas on that fateful day he collapsed

Two minutes only had lapsed

To hospital he was quickly rushed

But from his brain the blood had gushed


What happened next is now history

To them who heard it appeared a mystery

And to me his best friend I still mourn

For I have rays of hope not forlorn

That someday we will meet again

When He’ll come back with the clouds, Amen.


Magic of Love

By Gideon Mutai

Love is indeed humble as a dove

That made Him come from above

That made Him hung on the cross

To make me utterly free from dross


Love makes life complete

That I don’t need to repeat

People have died for the sake thereof

He from above and Valentine below


Valentine’s Day it has come to be

I know you may not come to agree

But it speaks of love volumes

Just seen by people wear costumes


History I may not be good at

But for someone put off your hat

And show love to the unlovable

Even those loving back not capable


Here is the conclusion of the matter

Your resources you may scatter

But love fail to portray its picture

And only end up with stricture


I would have loved to write another stanza

But I’ll run late for the extravaganza

Until next time take care of yourself

And your bad habits put on the shelf
