Vandag Is Nie Totsiens Nie
“Ek sal jou nooit nie vergeet.” Dis die woorde deur Ouma gespreek. Deur ‘n Engel se stem, wat ons almal sal mis,
Beckon me to stay tonight. Switch off the light, flatter me with those eyes. This is something I never thought of me, something you never should have let me be.
Verlief En Verlore
Met 'n hart van goud is hy geseën 'n skitterende glimlag, verdwaalde oë. Hoe voel dit om te lewe in 'n leuen? Net hy sal weet.
Jy is my lolliepop as ek sakgeld kry, Jy is die veld waarin my skapies wei. Jy is die pad waarop ek daagliks ry,
Please allow me to speak up for what you did to me, when you played God and trampled on my insecurities. It started on the day your kisses felt cold on my lips, and I was too caught up and blinded by my ignorance.
I can still hear the soft beat of the night. the weight of the silence as we stood side by side, the warmth of your hand as I tried to hold on, I felt so fragile, but still played along.

Toe ek klein was het ek gehoor
van hisse en 'n ding met 'n lang oor.
Van 'n pop wat op 'n ashoop lê
en 'n kous wat nog 'n maatjies wil hê.
Van 'n olifant wat kan vlieg
en 'n seun van hout wat baie kon lieg.
