Honoring Lynde Francis

Lynde Francis

Sunset at Noon
You brought laughter to many
You brought warmth to all
You were the light in the lives of many
Yet, this sun did not shine for long

You remind me of Africa
The pride in the Sahara
The Africa of our roots
The Africa of our youths

You were the voice of many
The hope of so much more
The inspiration of the ghetto
The link between generations.

The sun has set before its time…
So we think; so short a life…
Yet fate alone knows
Why you achieved so much in so little time

Goodnight Lynde
We bid you farewell
All you stood for, will be continued
For you passed on the baton

We will never forget you and your spirit will live in us for ever..

From your African daughter
