Working For Sweetie - Poem by Nyota Yasulwe

At work working as usual
Every day, every night
Starting with the Sun rising till when it becomes shy and starts the journey to hide
When it leaves the stars and the moon to dance in the sky
Tiredness take toll on me so I go to dreamland where I usually find you
To have a lovely time with lovely you
Then wake up again refreshed but determined to work hard again
So that the future of my babies and you sweetie can be enjoyable
Because I know there is no enjoying in loneliness without lovely you

I work because I need you in my dreams and in my life
I know you are somewhere, looking nice and lovely as usual
Let me continue to work as usual
Then our future will hopefully be usually lovely
All I pray is that you stay lovely for me

    The mood in the poem is one of hope, for a better future, with the sweetie and the family.
    The drive to work hard is that hope.
