Sisipho


It is a gift
A gift that can elevate yet without it you seperate
Mna ndiphiwe isipho
Sisipho sam
My gift of affection
Sindikhupha kwingxingo
Sindisusa eMonti sindise ePitoli
With this tingling feeling
My heart wears the crown of glory
My whole body is heating and
My mind will never feel sorry

Let our love never have an apostrophe
Without a full stop alukafi fi
Let it like pependicular lines meet at the right angles
For the rest of our lives let it taste like toffee
Let it be infinite like syllables

It has got an elipsis
For it will always be continued
It is a disease with no diagnosis
It will never be devalued
It is not seen it is felt
And like hands to each other we're help

Alungxengwanga ayibobutywala
Kwa ntliziyo kwakuvaliwe
For I had been used by a cheater
Nomphefumlo wawutixiwe
For I never thought I would meet a healer
For so long its been locked ther
Kucacile this was the one
He is the one to call me hun
And from his arms I'll never run

Smiles of satisfaction are exchanged
Together we are in cloud nine
Fortunately this is unfeigned
He'll never leave me. Every day is a sign
These feelings will remain unchanged
His body heat I'll never decline

This love is prominet
Yet nobody knows
Till death do us part
Those were our vows
For we will never depart
Let me repeat this part
Sisipho
It is a gift
A gift that can elevate
Yet without it you seperate
