In Memory of Sherpherd

Oh, how I remember my great friend
My heart laments for Shepherd,like a harp
and my innermost being,for his life
For I have looked and I have seen
I beheld with my own eyes
In Shepherd a.k.a Mshepo
A glimpse of a light so great
Yes the promise,
of exceedingly better things to come 

In the days apportioned us together
I looked at the garden that was Mshepo
and perceived in my heart
A fertile and fruitful field
That was to be accounted as forest
And whose fruits,
Are for the prosperity of this nation

In this day of adversity
we are drenched with tears
And our shouts of joy stilled
For all the sons we've lost
Who were like chaff in a whirlwind
all wiped away in a moment

The fat of our nations is wasting away
The waters are drying up
the grass is withering
and the vegetation is scorched
and soon nothing green will be left
Now with this I cousel you
Let us all come unto Christ
Our refuge from the storm
