For You, Tata Madiba - Nelson Mandela

                 Nelson Mandela

The beauty of your being holds me close,

Embraced in the silence of tearful joy.

The wonder of Life manifest on earth

Echoes in the memory of the path you trod

In the name of humanity’s deepest desire.

The desire for freedom –

Freedom of the soul to express itself

According to the gifts bestowed by the heavens

At the very core of creation.

The heart of the universe pulses with the rhythm

Of your courage, humility and Love,

Compassion born of surrender to the forces of change,

The very fire formed on the anvil of hope

When eyes of Light turn to the skies

Where the lost years of one life

Become the catalyst for a cup of gold

Flowing with richness down the centuries.
