Brenda’s Song

Image

I’ll be honest. This wasn’t initially written as a tribute to great late Brenda Fassie. Sometimes my brain creates titles and even seemingly meaningless poems. I kept thinking Brenda’s song! Brenda’s song! hence the birth of this poem. Since I adore Brenda Fassie, I thought why not pay tribute to her with this? …..oh well!

Let Brenda be
let Brenda sing
Set Brenda free
Let Brenda sing

We came here to see
To see Brenda sing
We came here to watch
To watch Brenda sing

We know Brenda’s song
We’ve heard it before
Let Brenda sing
Once and encore

We love Brenda’s voice
We love Brenda’s smile
We love Brenda’s story
We love Brenda’s song
