»Gadima (inspired by the gem that is my mother)«

by Masechaba Wessie, February 12, 2007

You are my beam in every sunshine
With you my world radiates
Emits from it
True splendour

You are my beat in rhythmic mantra
Your dance of life pulsates within
Resonates from you
Melodious songs of hope

You are my stride in ocean tides
You marvel me
Astound me
Leave me in awe of such majestic grace

You are my shade in every colour
With you I paint a portrait
Celestial beauty in every shade
You are my most precious masterpiece

You are my spring in every blossom
With you I am alive
I charm
Reflect true beauty that is Gadima

You are the pride within me
With you I am whole
I am me
I am Masechaba
A daughter to the Queen of Queens
