An Ode to the Hero

You weren’t my kith or kin

You weren’t one whose name I knew,

Until the cruel hands of destiny

Took you to the other world.

How I wish I had known you

While you were still here!

A guiding light you were, to the laity

A wonder, to the milieu.

An inspiration you were

To the many lives you’ve touched.

How I wish I had known you

While you were still here!

An epitome of victory

For all who hope

To see light at the end of the tunnel

That is made of sweat and blood.

How I wish I had known you

While you were still here!

Now I see why they celebrate you!

After all, it was in giving

That you sought pleasure in

While not giving wind of it

To the world, unlike many.

Rest, rest dear soul

In love and peace

Amid the stars that

You once admired

From a faraway land

From a faraway distance.
