WHEN MANDELA CRIES

WHEN MANDELA CRIES
© Farouk Asvat

When Mandela cries
He cries for us, brother.
And how your tears
     Behind the compassion
     Behind the stern face
Tell of love
Only you understand

[] ALS MANDELA HUILT

            Dutch translation by © Irene Scheltes

Als Mandela huilt
Huilt hij om ons, Bra Zinga.
En hoe jouw tranen
     Aachter het nedectogen
     Aachter het strenge gelaat
Van liefde vertellen
Kun jij alleen begrijpen
