Cinquains 2

 

i

 

einde
ek is by jou
in jou laaste asem.
nou dra ek jou hier binne my
veilig

 

ii

 

your grave
is my shelter
there, I hear your soft voice
there, I feel your quiet breath soothe
my scars

 

iii

 

jou graf
is my skuilplek
daar hoor ek weer jou stem,
voel ek jou asem sagkuns oor
my spoel
