wena usisiqalo sesiphelo
xa ndicaphula kwizibhal’ezingcwele
ungumfuziselo wesiseko sika Alpha and
you are my freedom, my emancipation
I can’t do without you
I won’t have enough wisdom
to pitch up my desires and follow up
you are a friend standing alone –
like a tree reaching the sky
with no one else around,
inspiring me to take flight and
reach my destination
you are the final
key to my resolutions.
you so kind to take me from dust to beyond,
from nothing to something,
from nowhere to somewhere.
you even brought me light to see my surroundings.
how precious is the opportunity that you blessed me with?
you are my honor
I CAN THANK YOU NOW!
