Leonard Dabydeen


Clasp your hands
Before you close your eyes:
Let the Light in your heart
Shine so bright,
That darkness and shadows
That prowl around you
Day and night,
Shame themselves into oblivion;
Let the beacon of joy
Bring everlasting peace and happiness
Deep within your soul -
So that you may one day
Leave us with a legacy
Of perpetual love.
