I remember the last time I saw you
It was just after 8 pm and my husband was in the living room watching soccer
“Let’s go out for a walk Adaeze, I’ve missed you”
You had been visiting a lot more,
It was very unusual but I was glad to have a companion,
So we went out, we made the bed seem like I was still there,
It was so good that I could have sworn my body was still there,
We walked forever, on a winding road that I had never seen,
As we walked, we met a friend of yours,
I also spoke about how impossible it was to retain wealth in my family.
My husband and I worked all the time and were still poor, I was a nobody, I had been ostracised by my people
You and your friend played it off,
You told me that pregnancy was not a big issue and that success came to all who were patient,
I remember thinking you were a little crazy, you laughed at me a lot.
At the end of the road, there was a little garden, the most beautiful garden ever.
I don’t remember much after that, I think I fell asleep on the grass,
I woke up in my house beside my husband.
You didn’t come to visit that night, or the nights after that.
Three weeks after I last saw you, I found out I was pregnant with twins,
Four weeks after that, my husband and I got promoted at our individual workplaces
I think you and you friend had something to do with it.
I’ll never know for sure, but I’ll never forget you.
