SEA AND SAND

Sea and sand
My love
My land,
God bless Africa
Sea and sand
My love
My land,
God bless Africa
But more the South of Africa
Where we live....
Bless the angry mountains
And the smiling hills
Where the cool water spills
To heal the earth's brow

Bless the children of South Africa
The white children
And the black children
But more the black children
Who lost the sea and the sand
That they may not lose love
For white children
Whose fathers raped the land....

Sea and sand
My love
My land,
God bless Africa
Many sunsets
Gold and crimson
Have dripped on the horizon,
Weeping for the dying day.
Many dawns have risen
In timely resurrection
From their cradles of light
Sunsets and dawns
Dawns and sunsets
I have seen them all
But when,
Oh when will I see that day
When love will walk the common way
To heal my wounded people
And break the shackles around their hearts?
- Don Mattera.

I love that poem.
Whilst this story is largely based on fact (especially Part One), Parts Two and Three are fiction based on actual events in South Africa. People in the literary world call this form of writing 'faction' (fiction + facts). I have changed some names, so that any resemblance to persons, living or dead, is purely co-incidental.


This book is dedicated to the diverse peoples of South Africa who one day will live in harmony, peace and prosperity in the beloved and beautiful country in spite of their great differences and the divisions of the past.

I hope to one day be able to see that happen. I would like to thank my beloved and wonderful wife Marie, a New Zealander with a great love for Africa, for the love, help, support and encouragement in writing this manuscript. She also unselfishly gave me the opportunity to indulge in any creative talents that I may have. Here on the other side of the world, it has not been easy yearning for the magic of South Africa, it's vastness and even the smell of the air. So Marie, thanks for helping to lift me in my down days as well as your large contribution with this work as well as the tiresome task of proof-reading.
