UTANDO (English Version: LOVE)

UTANDO (English Version: LOVE)

A Poem by Zamantungwa Da Poetess

Translation of the Xhosa version.

He loves me,
Of the women in the world he has chosen me,
He said it, yes,
I shall be the mother to his kids
The reason he is called a respectable man
Because he confessed that
When I'm by his side
He is given the courage to be the best he can ever be
All this he said with his hand holding mine
Looking me straight in the eye
Sending chills down my spine
Yes, he loves me

I love him
Through him I'm gonna witness
The glory of motherhood
His smile utters to my heart in silence that everything will be okay when I'm falling apart,
When he is with me
My world is complete
Looking at his eyes
I feel my throat dry up in yearning
For his love to meet mine
Yes, I love him

We love each other
He is mine
And I am his
Our hearts beat in unison
Boldly he calls me "My Love"
Sweetly I reply "My Darling"
When the time comes and our lips greet each other
The wetness of the kiss tingles in my bosom
Fulfilling a long overdue desire in us
Which without each other could never be satisfied
His hand around my waist
My head on his chest
As we stroll as one down the road
Feels like home because
Yes, we love each other.
