Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

But then I met you


Once I loved a girl,
who left me
for another man
and that deceit
I could never understand
and wretched did that pain appear

Once I loved a woman
and her children
who left me
to live with another guy,
without knowing the
reason why
and a life spent in vane
left a lot of pain.

At times love
seemed to be for others
and the worst kind of curse,
but then I met you
and the world changed
and true love enchanted me
and I knew how deep
love could really be.
