Treasure Island

Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

Buyisile


From a Zulu name 'Buyisile'
Meaning 'Brought Back'

With no hope in me
She came and something was back in me.
After a violent tempest
Or should I say a hungry pest?

After all that I lost
She... I mean her.., more like you.
It is you who brought back
Love, joy, peace, hope and laughter.

You brought back the things in need.
Yes they where lost, now they are back indeed.
