I Miss That Part - Poem by Musa Ndhlovu

I miss that part,
The very same part
That came every night before I sleep.
It happened before you sleep.
Young as I was, with no
Knowledge and understanding on
The words of wisdom,
That invited me freedom.
I miss that part.
You used to play that part
Of reading the book of wisdom
For me, to understand freedom.
You used your time before you sleep,
To explain every line before I sleep.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My big sister use to read me the Bible before I we went to sleep. And now I have growen and 'I miss that part'.
