Will you be there

In loving memory of Mmatladi Ditshwele

Who will be there to wipe my tears?
When they run fast down my face as I wail?
When they hit the ground hard like stones of hail

Who will be there to heal my heart?
As I watch them bury your numb body
Beneath a mountain of soil and dress it
With colorful flowers that will soon fade

Will you be there mum?
Will you be there by my side?
To instill in me hope that life still exists
When my only wish is to crawl back into your womb
To be buried with you

Will you be there mum?
To listen as they read loud before you
Love letters that you will never find some time to reply
When they sing for you the last song
Hoping to touch your lifeless heart

Will your ghost be there among the gathering?
Will you be there by my side?
To give me hope when I can’t find any among the living
To wipe my tears when I cry over your demise
Will you be there mum….?
