Goodnight Madiba

Winter’s day.
Pale sun
Fails to warm a world
Colder, poorer, weaker
Because You are gone.

Your spirit,
Strong
Twenty-seven captive years
And many more in quiet service
Has left us,
Your children.
We mourn your passing.

We, your children,
Will not forget
Your sacrifice
And your example.
We will pursue truth and goodness
We will broadcast reconciliation
We will sow tolerance.

Rise up, my brothers
Hear the call, my sisters
Let us build
The Rainbow Nation
Build on his legacy
Build on our freedom.

Lala ngoxolo, Tata
Rest in peace, Tata
