Mandela died today
ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas
the news of his death was no surprise
to a world already dressed in black
a world already mourning
a man who changed the world
from a world coloured black and white
to a world so colourful
that not a single shade
could ever matter the most.
We lost a piece of history today
ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas,
Let’s hope we can hold onto the rainbow.
