After reading the quote below, I have the answer now, to what haunts me!
It’s like living with a spirit within you- A Ghost.
It says “Author Unknown”, but the way it is written looks like a traslation to me, also the specific words that are used. However it certainly fits the bill for me!
You see, I did leave South Africa……..
“It is always with you, there inside your head. Our rivers run …in currents, in the swirl of your thumbprints.
Our drumbeats, counting out your pulse, our coastline, the silhouette of your soul.”
So Africa smiled a little when you left.
“We are in you,” Africa said. “You have not left us, yet.” ………
Never Truer Words Spoken.
(And guess what! I now know the author, Bridget Dore, written in 1995) Thanks
