In Shona (Zimbabwean language) they say, Chema netariro
I know your legacy will live, my darling I miss you

You sent me a message, telling me how you loved me
You gave me so much love
That will last my life time
Farewell my love
I miss those Red Roses
You got me every Valentines
Happy Valentines in heaven.
