Rest in Peace Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
Nelson Mandela is a man I have not met, yet love.
He never met me, but knew me.
He inspired me to laugh, cry, think, feel, pray, and love.
My heart is heavy to hear of his passing.
May he rest in peace and watch over the world that mattered so much to him.
We are blessed to know this man and have his eyes upon us from heaven.
I shall cherish him always and with his memory, forever be keeping the faith.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
W. H. Auden
