Your unfailing love looms, unrivalled
In a world where the worst happens,
Daily – hourly, minute by minute.
Mothers smother the innocent fruit of their wombs,
Innocent floating in the filthy effluent of the city’s’ septic tanks.
Your unfailing love looms, unrivalled
You picked me up,
Wiped the rivers of tears on my face
And urged me on.
You had patience for me when everyone had none,
listening attentively as I spoke incomprehensible sentences.
Your teachings would escape my mind upon reaching my ears
And the world would jeer and sneer at me
But you would smile,
Pat me on the shoulder
And assure me: “You will catch up my son”.
Your unfailing love looms, unrivalled.
