Care

Hold the Night

Ugonna Wachuku

 

Hold the night. Hold my love.

Hold my dreams for mankind.

 

Hold my fears tonight. Keep

the fleeing night. Keep my

care.

 

See my mood. Hold the night,

beautiful one. Please, hold

the fleeting night.

 

Don't let this night walk

away in the dark. Hold the

night.

 

Hold my dreams for

all humankind and our dying

environment. Hold the night,

beautiful one.

 

Cape of Good Hope darling,

let it be the night of a

bountiful new dawn for you

and for me, for everyone

across the planet, for our

bleeding beautiful blue earth.

 

Hold the night, I beg of you.

Tell me you will hold the night

till dawn.

 

Please, tell me you will

hold this love of mine till

the night sings of a refreshing,

healing, new morning for humankind.

 

Please, Cape of Good Nomathemba

darling, hold my uplifting care

till the fleeing night smiles

into heaven's blessed morning.  

 

Just hold the night!

Hold this night!  

 

Please, hold the night,

Cape of Good Hope lady!

The night of the

spirit's deep.

Take My Love

Ugonna Wachuku  

 

 

When all is said and lived;

when beauty and joy are

planted in your earth-heart;

when the last royal roses

come to you, remember, I

will always be there for

you through pain, agony

and tears.

 

And handsome heaven's

brilliance will be your 

light through dark waters.

Day shall be your companion

through sun-lit pathways

of hope, love and new

life.

 

In my soul, caring streams

and rivers will rise on this 

trying, painful journey 

through life. 

 

Windful waterfalls will kiss

me for a new kind of hope in

love and beauty enchanting.

 

Just remember, I will always

be there for you. Darling, you

can gladly count on me to till

the land and work the farm 

through every pain and 

agony. 

 

I will tend the garden and

bring you roses and tullips

of blue and yellow.

So, always remember,

there will be no if.

I'll listen and care. 

I'll uphold you to 

outlive every terror 

and pain with love 

and wisdom. 

 

You can always count on heaven

to bloom my heart anew each day.

Even when the spirit is weak, I

will ever remember that you are

there. Surely, darling, I will.

 

Take my love when you will.

And remember, through this

pain, through this agony,

I will ever 

be there, 

all

for
