Unconditional love, Life is confusing, when you loose your dream like a candle in the rain burning down...it gets dark and it gets deep but the magic sticks on and on, how can you tell them, i guess it never dies...when I woke up this morning everything I knew has changed then i asked myself if this is a dream o just an illusion....It's a bran new day, the sun is shining bright. #RIPMsMathosa #YouAreMissed. #LeboMathosa #23/10/06
