Melancholy

Listening to some old Lingala music Tshala Muana sings Kokola Reminiscing the past – I just can’t explain this feeling As I drove back – my thoughts are far in wonderland I recollect the past moments of joy and smile  But am here healthy and sound My son brings me great joy I see him thrice a week  I always sing him a song every morning  “What a beautiful morning” he smiles and giggles But I have to do this for him When you are four son – papa will be a doctor of philosophy I know you’ll wear my cap and ask why it’s not like the rest’s It will be a happy time for us all You’ll have started school and maybe have a sister I think of all this with a hopeful heart
