...'Dr Phil - Poem by Nkululeko Mdudu
Shh.....silence sweeps the crowd
of anxious faces waiting to see
A singing legend
As marvelous as he.
I've never seen Da Vinci paint
Nor have I had words with Shakespear's king
But I tell you; the true magesty of words
Comes from hearing him sing
He has a sweet voice
And a melodic tone
That is why I have all his cds
I even have him on my phone.
Everyday I listen,
everywhere I go
And everytime he sings to me
Him 'true coloures' show
'Dr Phil-good', I call him
Dr Phil for short
His words speak volumes
Of his past experiences' retort
It was a short while ago
For the first time in December
I took some time to listen
Then I heard 'do you remember? '
From that moment
When I heard on the radio:
Next up on the Dj's double play
Would be sweet susudio
I soon got over my loss
If leaving me was easy
Then I'd wait no more for her
The heart remained but the mind got busy
We were living seperate lives
But something was in the air
And against all odds
I found her standing there
She said, 'let's not hurry love'
I said, 'I've been waiting'
It was indeed a groovey kind of love
But our day in paradice was faintng
So I made this vow
As she looked through my eyes:
'As long as the testimony holds true
Then I won't stop loving you'.
