67 Minutes for Madiba

Had you not lived
Where would we be
As a county, as a nation
When will we see?
It was a long walk to freedom
You fought for the rights
We now take for granted
We’ve lost from our sights

So humble, so powerful
Like a lion, you led
We disregard the sacrifice
Put the past to bed
67 minutes we now have to give
To remember you
For this beautiful unity
This legacy, this gift
Because of your battle,
A rainbow nation now lives

Today let us reflect
May we unite
Let us stand together
Continue to fight
Not in the difference or injustice still rife Not in violence, not with the strife
In humility, in unity
As one we stand
We love you Tata
We love this land
