Oh how the people weep.
For the extinguished light.
But never ever did you,
fail us, or give up the fight.
A briefest of time,
you graced this mortal coil.
And yet somehow even beyond,
you are walking deftly upon our soil.
A voice that roared,
with a mighty spiritual power.
Talking peace and loving harmony,
until your last sacred hour.
High on the mount Zion,
we still hear your perfect peace.
You took us to a place of hope,
where eternal love can never cease.
I sadly never knew you,
or shook your hand with love.
I wonder would you speak,
share the secrets from above.
Your people never forget,
just what you'd meant to them.
A Ras-tafarian peoples hero,
in our spirits Bob, you live again.
A mystery you took so ill,
but bravely fought to live.
The legacy you leave behind,
shows the tremendous spirit that you give.
I consider you my brother,
feel the love that drove you on.
In this spirit of love you proved,
how our race could all be one...
This is my tribute to a great man of peace.
Go and watch Marley the movie soon and you too will learn just what a wonderful spirit Bob Marley was/is and will be forever.
