A dedication to my Aunt Dolly...a translation of my poem "Gorgeous Blue Eyes"

 Pragtige Diep Blou Oë

 Ek smag om JOU te omhels

Om JOU aan te raak

JOU Stem 

Die sagte briesie in my oor

n Glimlag verhelder my oë

As ek so na JOU staar

Diep binne daai pragtige blou oë 

So vol Lewe

So vol liefde

Geen ander gedagte maak my gelukkiger 

As om saam met JOU op sandduine te wandel

Terwyl die skadu’s van pers sonsondergang weg smelt

Is ek een met alles om my

Elegant en vol moed

Tyd vergete

Met ‘n skadu van ‘n glimlag wat oorbly 

As laaste strale glinsterend skalks loer oor horizon vêr

Deur die vensters na jou siel,

Kyk ek na die skoonheid om my  

En vir oulaas in daardie Diep Blou Oë

"Gorgeous Blue Eyes"

I crave to embrace you
To feel you
Your voice
A gentle breeze in my ear
A smile lights up my face
As I look at you
Into those gorgeous blue eyes
Full of life
Full of love
No thoughts make me happier
Than dancing in the sand with you
As shades of purple sunset fades away
Connected to all that is you
Elegant and graceful
Time forgotten
The shadow of a smile remains
The sun trying to take another peek
Gazing through the windows of my soul
As I take another look
Deep into those gorgeous blue eyes

I can still hear the voices of my aunt Caroline and grandma Dolly. I can still see their smiles and smell grandma Dolly's cooking. I remember their loving care when I had double pneumonia.

This is a wonderful tribute to your aunt, Tinka, and so beautifuly and eloquently written. She will always live on in these words. I love the softness in these words also. Isn't it wonderful that we can still remember the love? Thank you for shairng.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

I can bet that Aunt Dolly very much appreciates this wonderfully written poem about her blue eyes...good to see you, you have been missed...(what language is that, by the way, it looks like it might have some German in it, but I am long from an expert)Take care of yourself, dear young lady, ED

A beautiful tribute Tinka...your words melt even the coldest of hearts and bring a warm rain upon even the most parched gardens of the souls of unbelievers who doubt the existence of love.
