With your word of honour you promised we’d always be together, forever.
The day seems to take forever to arrive.
The day for us to finally be together.
You are the only one – it’s true.
My heart belongs only to you.
In the evening, love of my life, I stare at your pictures…
Thinking about the massive distance between us.
You’re telling lies!
I only ever remember you as a liar.
Sweetheart, it’s true, you’ve always been one to warp the truth.
My one and only – my love from early youth.
From you I shy away,
Lest you bring me pain.
Rough translation of a Shona and Ndebele song my high school choir sang – with a slight tweak.
