The One I Imagine


This poem is one of two collaborations I did with my friend Thobekile “Thobs” Mbanda, who visited Barbados for a couple of months in 2013.  She left before we could perform our collabs together, and I decided to release one of them here.

The One I Imagine

Thobs

You

Are the man

That sends

Shivers down my spine and

Makes me wonder

 

You are the man

Wonderfully created the man of deep imagining

The son of the soil the sun of glory

 

You are the man from whose lips flow juices of wisdom

The word is truth the sound profound rich in wealth of knowledge

Your humility a light so bright

 

Robert

You

You are the woman

Whose essence

Makes the sunshine feel like shade

Your beauty makes him hide his rays

He cannot compete

 

You

You are the woman I revere

I worship at your altar

I want to be baptized into your assembly

Be the lead soloist in your choir

And sing your praises

 

You

You are the beauty to my soul

The rhythm in my step

The air that I breathe

And the reason for my existence

 

Thobs

You are the man son of the soil the descendent of kings

It’s in your step

It’s the glistening light in your eyes

 

You are the man the sun raised by lionesses in wilderness but still you maintain your glory

Your manner is sure

 

Robert

You

You are the empress of my heart

The ruler of my inner realm

Every step exudes confidence

I am in awe of your power

My Queen, I am honoured

To have you at my side

 

You

You are strength

You are the backbone of the nation

The foundation of the universe

The axis on which my life turns

From you flows wisdom like a river

I kneel, and drink my fill

 

Together:

You are the one I imagine
