A dwelling place for my heart


Where streams flow,
where the sun rises in the east
far beyond the morning star
where darkness has no place to hide
is where I find you
in the present and now

to start a life with you anew
when the stormy winds have passed
when my world has a new beginning
there where the land meets up with the sea
is where you made your promise to me.

Where the thorny trees rise up,
where the leopard hides in the rocky cliffs
in the bush-veldt of my childhood
is where I want to grow old with you.

I want to find the sun when it awakens from the night
and drink coffee with you,
I want to rediscover life in you
and in your heart
I have found a dwelling place for mine.
