My Tribute to Mandela

Everyone is heartbroken
a dream has just stopped being
The world grieves
at the passing over
of a gleam brightest, leading
I am sad
A little statuette I had bought
and brought with love
from Johannesburg
is lost
Everyone writes on a light called Mandela
I look for my lost love
in the dark

    Thank you Louis Kasatkin for your response to this poem.
    The little poem was a very spontaneous reaction, from my heart.
