You And I

By Lebo Mashile
You and I
We are the keepers of dreams
We mould them into light beams
And weave them into life’s seams

You and I
Know life is not what it seems
We strip the fat from the lean
And find the facts in between
The visions we redeem
And the agony of choice
Yours is just a mind
And mine is a just a voice
But when we love
We love with a heat that would rise like a song in flight
On the flesh of our backs
If it’s love that we lack
Then we walk with the pain that we see
Love exchange that we spite
As we walk through indecision fading in fright
We ride the crest of intuition on the journey of this life

And by the hands of the infinite we hear the cries of the rest
Weighed down by their intelligence submitting to this test
But you and I
Push the boundary of reason
You and I
Plot the mystery of seasons
You and I
Paint this history to free men
Nothing can be stopped like you and I

You and I
We are the keepers of dreams
We mould them into light beams
And weave them into life’s seams
