As I turn, a dedication to my mother
by Walter Dikgale
(Polokwane, Limpopo, South Africa)
As I turn...to look at my heart.
As I turn...and look at the humble passing of my feet.
As I turn to adore your honest smile, your love displayed.
As I turn...and look at my graceful past.
As I turn...and look at the path Im threadin'.
As I turn and see the scars and cuts in your lovin hands,
things you did to raise a son like me, my heart gleams.
As I turn...to count my fruits.
As I turn...and count my colours and stripes.
As I turn, all I wanna do is bow before you MAMA.
All I wanna do is kiss your feet and say thank you.
As I turn...I JUST MISS YOU MORE WITH EACH PASSING DAY.
