Don't go

Don't go

Don't leave

Not like this

You can't leave me hanging

What about the questions I still have for you

Who will answer them?

Just like that

You taking your secret with you to the grave

You can't go mama

Who will take care of me?

And raise me well

What will I be without you?

You can't go my child

Ngothuma ba?

You leaving me all alone

As if I was a barren woman

You can't go my sister

Who will irritate me and get on my last nerve

You can't go my brother

Who will fight for me?

You can't go daddy

Who will be my hero?

And who will put the bread on the table

You can't go teacher

Who's going to give me wisdom

You can't go pastor

Who going to show me the way to salvation

You can't go neighbour

Whom I'm I gona share my latest gossip with

You can't go my love

You is going to love me

Whom I'm I going spend the rest of my life with

Don't go my friend

Whom will I share my ice cream with?

And whom I'm I gona tell my secrets

Don't go

Not now

Stay with me for a while

There's still a lot you need to do

If you go

Who will play your role?

What are we suppose to do without you

Who is gona fill your gab

Uthi benzeni bona ngaphandle kwakho

We will break without you

It's true

There never a good time to say good bye or to let go of those you love

There's a season for everything

Time to smile and time to mourn

Time to be born and time to die

Yonke into inesiphetho

Just like luther

I wish I can get another chance, another walk, another dance

With you

And I will play a song that will never ever end

Just to be with you one more time

Ndela nhle

Dedicated to all those who lost their loved ones

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
