My weeping father

Written by: sindisiwe Dube

Oh my father my weeping father
There is this promise l make today
It might just make you smile
Your dark eyes may even shine with pride

Your labour will not be in vain
My success will take away your pain
Your wounds will be healed by your tears of joy
And your deceased heart will be ressurrected by faith

My father someday failure will flee with shame
Laughter will be heard from above
Unbury your head from the sand
And weep no more my king
