Just to add a little flavor, i decided to post a Siswati translation of katie's poem so that you can enjoy both versions and maybe share them with your loved ones in a foreign language....you may never know her/his reaction when you work another language on her...as for me i can love you more and maybe you'd be lucky enough to get some lovin....hahahahaha :)
i have posted both poems.....enjoy..............
"When I first met you I felt like I had known you forever" that is a rare thing to happen.
I Know You
When I first met you
I felt like I had known you forever,
telling you my secrets
and what I didn't want ever.
you listened to me
I bet you thought I'd never end,
who would have thought
we would become more than just friends.
Over a period of time,
I got to know the real you.
A boy so caring and gentle,
with a heart so true.
You've survived your life
with hurt and loneliness by your side.
I told you I'd never leave
because of the feelings I have inside.
I know you
like no one I have ever known,
and sometimes I wonder
what I'd do if you were gone?
So I have decided
time answers all.
If it is meant to be
time will remove the wall.
I love the way we are together,
you can always make me smile.
Will it ever really be forever?
I guess I will have to wait awhile.
Time will reveal, what lies ahead
but always remember
what I have said.
Meeting you has changed my life
and I really love you so,
the feelings I feel for you
I am never letting go.
Remember me always
and I will too.
I always think of
me and you.
“Nangicala Kukwati ngeva ngatsi ngikwati inguna phakade” loko akukavami kwenteka.
Kweva ngatsi ngikwati ingunaphakadze,
Ngikutjela timfihlo tami
Ngiyacabanga kutsi bocabanga kutsi ngeke ngicedze,
Ngubani (nje) bekangacabanga
kutsi sitoba ngetulu kwebangani.
Ngikhonile kukwati kabanti.
Umfana lonesineke nalonakekelako,
Ukhonile kuphila imphilo yakho
ngebuhlungu nesitunge celeni kwakho.
Ngakutjela, angeke ngikushiye
Ngenca yemizwa yami ( can also be translated as …ngenca yelutsandvo lengiliva ngekhatsi kwami),
Ngatsi azange sengati umuntfu emphilweni yami.
Lesinye sikhatsi ngiyatibuta
Kutsi ngingentani kube bongekho
Sikhatsi siphendvula konkhe
Nangabe kumele kwenteke
Sikhatsi sitosusa tindvonga
Ngiyayitsandza indlela lesingakhona,
Uhlala ungenta ngimamatseka.
Kuyoke yini kube kwaphakadze.
Ngiyacabanga kumele ngime kancane
Sikhatsi sitoveta lokume ngaphambili
Kepha uhlale ukhumbula lengikushito.
Kukwati kuyishintjile imphilo yami,
Indlela lengikutsandza ngayo angeke ngikushiye.
Nami kanjalo ( can also be interpreted as .. Nami ngitohlala ngikukhumbula)
Ngihlala ngicabanga mine nawe ngaso sonkhe sikhatsi.
