Madiba teaches wisdom, throughout Universe each day.
He teaches personal freedom in his own especial way.
He teaches not to judge, nor bitterness to hold.
His goodness wraps around you, as if a lamb within the fold.
He talks the talk, and walks the walk, each day of his life.
He’s fought the fight, and won his way, throughout all the strife.
He holds his head up high, with dignity his shroud,
And now he holds his hands out, to the ever gathering crowd.
His goodness and his kindness, his unwavering strong belief,
Never falters, never alters; from “his book”, let’s take a leaf.
A shining true example of truth with balance combined,
For his footsteps never falter, as he tutors all mankind.
Now as his steps grow slower, and his sight begins to dim,
Let’s follow his example, for we owe so much to him.
So let us all continue, with the work our hands can do.
Forever walking forward in his shining light so true.
