If only life could be bought
An adaptation of a song by a dancehall artist called Soul Jah Love, Dai
Upenyu Waitengwa, If only life could be bought.
Dedicated to my late mother.
If only life could be bought,
I would buy my mother’s life back,
Then I would play with her,
Laugh with her, and live with her.
My mother would never leave me to endure this suffering…
