Gone too soon
By Richard Napam
A star has fallen An eagle has fallen A light has gone out, Gone too soon. Gone are the dreams you had for us, Dreams for a Nation of thousand tribes Dreams that united millions But you are gone Gone too soon. Words are meaningless to express Express how dear you are, For you are too dear To go too soon To the young, you have been, An inspiration, to shoot to the stars, A strength, to ascend the heights. But you are gone, Gone too soon. Compassion defined your heart A heart you shared with millions, A heart belonged to the millions, But you are gone, Gone too soon. Years may slip by, Leaders may rise, and fall. But your legacies will be forever, Forever in our hearts, Because you are gone, Gone too soon.
