Beautiful green land witnessed your birth When your eyes opened light was shed everywhere Strong South African soul! Strong human soul! Greatness was not your goal Justice is all your heart longed A real fighter! A real leader! Education is the core you once said You never gave up! Your body was jailed, but not your soul They tried to extinguish the fire in your heart, but they failed You were stronger than that You were stronger than all the evil Free thinker, free soul! Revenge was not in your dictionary You decided to learn the language of your enemy You decided to pour forgiveness on your oppressors Sacrifice, tears, separation…all you trade for your people Love and forgiveness you taught us You are not longer with us, but your thoughts, your love, your example will forever dwell in our hearts Not only on your beautiful land, but on all corners of our world Magic smile, wise eyes! The world will never forget you, Tata! God is hearing how grateful we are for having sent you to this world The greatest, the humblest, the wisest! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Madiba!
