May we always remember
To Chibuisi FELIX
We'll write Africa soon
from the houses our ancestors built
We'll complete the other half of the yellow sun
We will beat the drums together
along Anambra and Abia border;
for we are better than we were yesterday
We will soon search for the other half of Biafra
then, raise her sunset before the dawn
Close friend, bosom feelings not a cause to mourn
May we always remember...
May we always remember that the
beauty of the world lies in us
I won't be the friend you murder in your dreams
And when the moon is labouring to shine
promises may lead us to believe that
our ink shall write African glories...
We will not miss the goodness of this fine world
May we always remember.
