African Sketches We sketch We scotch Like a scotch-cart Slowly they follow They are scared In fear they scream

By your side like an aide
I stand not because i have stood here before
I stand because you understand

I stand here though my heart is in pain
I won't complain
I stand by your side
Though  dry times
Winter and rain

I stand here
Inside the warmth of your heart
There is true love that i cannot fight

You are my joy through the pain
The apple of my eye
The eye in my Iphone
The berry in my Blackberry
The something in my Samsung

You are so handy  like a  Nokia
To my heart you bring good tidings like a G-Tide

I stand here even though many have told me to move
To leave
To cowardly run away

I stand here...
To my heart you are
