You came to this world to teach, to guide and to lead,
To always be with your family, friends and all those in need.
Your mature thoughts and a large heart,
Was something that set you apart.
The time was limited and much had to be done,
You led a life full of warmth and enlightenment like the sun,
Setting examples and benchmarks that few would dare.
You live forever in the thoughts and actions of your loved ones,
‘Cause what they learnt from you, physical absence will never ever erase.
