Tribute (to the late President Mills)

life failed him when we needed him the most

Death took him to the pit; we could not reach

Is it by mistake or design that

When we need someone the most, he leaves

Please stay and never leave

Sometimes life is not enough and we don't know why

It makes us cry, the road is not long

But we have to carry on and I don't know why

So cause no pain because this is the last time

So with all the humility, Prof. Mills left

Let us cry hard in this pouring rain

And with this pride that we remember his humility

Am choosing my last words from a dictionary

To describe what has no name

And with this pain that I celebrate the loss

ADVERTISEMENT

Of a great man who was once a President

Of a great nation.

And we cry, needing him now

Please stay and never leave

Sometimes life is not enough and we don't know why

It makes us cry, the road is not long

But we have to carry on and I don't know why

So cause no pain because this is the last time
