Did you hear the beating
Of the mourning hearts
Of the old,
Of those who knelt
But I fear
Is it too late for you to see ?
Did u see the tears of the vigil guards
Races, Kings and Beggars
Who are now united in their sorrow
But how long will we grief and reflect
And will there be a better tomorrow?
The young and the restless
They never knew you
U have united them with their fathers
I think they now understand and see
But when the dust has all but fallen
Will they still remember your life’s work
For a nation to be free?
The world is now a darker place
But you have given us
We must now let you go
Go to her
And may you rest in peace .
