Farewell Mandela


A moment to think
A day in memento
A season to reconcile
And a date to enter history

A tale of two cities
A talk of a hero
A moment to be silent
And a date to enter history

A fare thee well Mandela
A viva song to you
A match to bid you
And a date to enter history

A cry for wisdom
A tear in remembrance
A sob in memory
And a date to enter history

A day be-mourned
A sad farewell Mandela
A RIP message from all
And a date to enter history

Fare thee well beloved Nelson
Watch our every footstep Mandela
Guide our weakened souls and thoughts
And finally RIP King of Peace Nelson Mandela

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
