.

You love bright colours the way
Youíre fond of this life on Earth
The happiest man you stay
Regardless of pain
Because
You always shared your smile
Your dream of freedom and peace
And tried to reconcile
The planet torn into pieces
You struggled not for your sake
Itís taken so much to stand
But honour and love could make
Your foe become your friend
And people will not forget
The shine of beloved eyes
For generous deeds beget
The legend that never dies

Mandela. He did overcome. You have to give credit for that.

From the title I felt it was for him. Very beautiful and sensitive tribute to a man who showed the WAY!

Love and peace,
