Death, I envy you
Of you, Madiba gave an envious view
Your fear, he never submitted to
And at his time, he smiled and embraced you

Goodnight Madiba...

Life, never again will I trust you
Never again will I feel secured in you
For with the good Madiba did in you
Still you gave him up for death to pierce him through

Goodnight Nelson, our great hero...

O mother earth! I fear you more
In your belly, lies the rich and the poor
The mighty
And the lowly
The old, the toddler
Now it's Madiba, our beloved leader

Goodnight Mandela...

Heaven, welcome the sojourner
Earth, goodbye to a great achiever
The Madiba of Africa
