Memory and Legacy

Son of the soil

Father of the people

Soul of a nation

Legend for the world

Mandela’s memory

Remains alive

In the hearts and minds

Of people whose lives

Have been enriched and elevated

By his being

Mandela’s spirit

Continues to live

In those who honour

His model of vision

Courage and dedication

Will last for perpetuity

As an inspiration and hope

For what he brought to this world

And for what he left behind

For everyone
