Stilte herinner my aan my lewe

Weet nie of ek lewe
niemand klop aan my deur
geen gelui van ‘n telefoon
net stilte
nou weet ek hoe stilte voel
stilte herinner my aan my gevegte in my lewe
Soos n stukkende telefoon sonder klank
is die paaie van my lewe
net stilte
Ek weet nie hoe ek oorleef
sonder jou in my lewe
net stilte
bring net my my telefoon
so dat ek jou kan bel
nou weet ek hoe dit voel
sonder jy in my lewe

(English version)
Only Silence reminds me of my life

I do not know if I am alive
no knock on my door
no ringing of a telephone
only silence
now I know how to feel silence
silence reminds me of my fights in my life
As a broken phone without sound
the roads of my life
only silence
I do not know how I survived
without you in my life
only silence
just bring me my phone
so that I can call
now I know how it feels
without you in my life

Was inspired to write this poem when it got real quiet in my life
When there is silence we do miss those we love very much normally its when they busy working or traveling were signals is poor or no power to recharge there phones laptops etc. Common in South Africa This is for all that also miss their loved ones and lovers .
