Genade van die Liefde

Flash is required!

dis waarskynlik die ses en veer-
tig miljoenste keer dat 'n ge-
dig oor die liefde
haar weg deur die siel
van n man as n lied uitvind

ek verklaar my dan hier tot slaaf
of koning of wat dit haar behaag
in diens van die liefde
in al haar fasette
want ses letters
is nie veel nie.

en sy vra nie veel nie
die liefde vra alles
en dis wat so salig is:
om in haar hande, oorgelewer
aan die genade van die liefde
te lewe!

this is probably the forty six
millionth time that a
poem about love
finds her way out through the soul
of a man in the form of a song

I hereby declare myself a slave
or king or whatever she desires
in service of love
in all her facets
because four letters
aren't that many

and she doesn't ask much
love asks everything
and that's a blessing:
to be In her hands,
delivered unto the mercy of love
