Letters to Chris

It is in the way you know my history
As though your very feet have walked
On the soil that I have walked
It is in your powerful presence
That is sure as the sun
What a dark day it would be
If the sun would not be found
Tomorrow?
It is in the places that you take us
Places we do not always want to go
But we go nonetheless
Because you make them unavoidable
It is in the beauty you bring
The strength you give
The love you show
It is all in the perfection of your verse
It is in the way
You live in the hearts of many
It is in your availability
That causes us to carry you
To think of you
We find ourselves muttering prayers
For you
Your generousity inspires it
You give nothing less
You can only get so much more
It is in your brotherhood
That makes me call you
Bhuti
A word only
Out of the heart language

Enkosi bhuti wam
