Hamba Langa Shona Nothando Lami


Nhiziyo yami usuyokophela ngaphakathi,
Konke kwakubekiw' ukuba kuyophela,
Namanxeba ngiyethemb' azophola,
Nezinyembezi zizogelez' okomay' okungegazi,
Ukungaz' impela kufana nokungaboni,
Konk' sengikubopha ngembelek' emhlane welanga,
Hamba malanga shona nothando lwami,

Ngimuhle ngithamel' isicewu,
Ngicel' isicephu kugogo ngithamel' ilanga,
Ngithumel' amehl' ezintabeni ezigudl' uKhahlamba,
Ngihlamb' izandl' nginikin' ikhanda,
Lufifi ngibhek' amaland' echobana,
Nemisebe yelanga laph' iqhundeka,
Lisho liyoshona likhasel' ezintabeni,
Okomhlaba sekuyosal' emhlabeni,
Bekuwuthand' umyalelo ka Adam no Eva,
Ngikwendlalel' isidikiselo isihogo sokushis' uthando,
Hamba langa shona nothando lami,

Ontanga bami ngibashay' indiva,
Lapho begegetheka bedl' insini,
Ngiqhath' usiz' ngidl' imihlathi,
Ngiye ngizisole ngibheke emuva,
Ngangithi ngithole imvu,
Engenamelusi ngith' ingelosi,
Yan' imvula yawavula amaphiko,
Waqala wavungam' umoya wosizi,
Aqal' avulek' amehlo ngayibon' imibala yamaphiko,
Hamba langa shona nothando lwami,

Ngibuyel' emuv' ngiland' imiqing' yemilando,
Lapho sidudulana ngesinqandu,
Esixabanis' izindebe ziye zishay' ihlombe,
Kuye kunanel' izihosh' zemith' ye denga,
Engidedele ngith' diya diya ngishay' uzamthilili,
Ngikhoth' udebe ngidansel' imizwilili nemi khulungwane,
Yezinyoni zehlath' elikhulukazi ehlane,
Phakath' ezihosheni sibhekana ngonyazi lonyezi onyelela lufif' emafini,
Uhamba uyoshona nothando lwami,

Izinyembezi zothando lwethu,
Ukugongobala kwenhliziyo yami,
Imilando nenjabulo yethu,
Uthando inzondo nenxabano,
Izifungo nezethembiso zakho,
Namanga namaqiniso ethu,
Ngikupheka ngogozwana,
Ngikubopha ngentamb' ebomvu yemoy' emibi,
Ngik'bek' esivivaneni sokushona kwelanga,
Kuyoba inganekwane yamagwabab' azob' echoban' emathafeni,
Laph' ilanga lihamba liyoshon' ezintabeni.

    yalila insizwa kulenkondlo, yayinhle ke khona inkondlo yakho mfo wakithi....
    ukuhlangana kuhlale kumnandi, kanti ukwehlukana kuhlale kuletha usizi nezinyembezi, impilo isifundisa konke ngosizi nezinyembezi nsizwenye.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
