Talking Nelson Mandela

Talking Nelson Mandela is the name of my song:
I sing it for your soul, friend from Africa, born to be strong,
born to bring the light
that’s ending apartheid,
showing humanity’s might.

Talking Nelson Mandela: you stand for liberty
born from the truth of forgiveness that knows the unity
of all colors and nations,
of friend and foe alike
in love’s unending might.

Talking Nelson Mandela: you show what has to be seen –
the power of heart and destiny that will never cheat
the aim of our life
to strengthen the light
of wisdom, love and compassion.

Talking Nelson Mandela is the name of my song
I sing for you on your way back to your home.
Grow there in peace and light
til all will call for new life
and a new name and body.

And then from the temple within, the next unexpected will come
to drive out the night even stronger,
dispel the ignorance
with truth and love unending,
meeting memories that will tell
of Nelson Mandela’s Love and Work on Earth,
Love and Work,
Love and Work on Earth.
