A Letter to My Father

We smile and we laugh
Sometimes have stolen moments of tears rushing down with the seasons of time
Your spirit leaves within us as mother tells tales of moments well spent

Some say I act just like you, even when I find I know so little of you
I am the blood of ur blood
A seed of your seeds
I am the heritage of your generations to come

Ndinguqaqambile wephupha eline ngomso
Ndingumvangeli weThemba lolonwabo
NdingumHebhere wamaHebhere
Ndikphupha sendilele
Izithunywa zindixele ukuba bekumelea… Kubenje

Stronger than an Ox remain
More things may come your way refrain
Let your spirit guide you this way
Happy father’s day
