Mahatma Gandhi

The light put out

The guidance gone

It feels like this darkness will never give way to dawn

Father lays in his eternal sleep

While his millions and millions of children weep

Through this dark night

His principles gave light

Never lie and never fight;

With these ideals independence he won

Without raising a fist, without pointing a gun

 

He spoke against racism in S.A

All men are brothers

together at the table of brotherhood as King would say

 

Gandhi fought for equality

He fought for freedom

Our father is now dead

The light is gone

And although we will forever need him

This black night slowly gives way to dawn
