My 11 year old daughter wrote this a few months ago... I wonder if she will be able to add a new stanza post the impact of the celebration of Mandela's life:
Hoping that we could turn over the page.
Not ever knowing what would follow.
Nobody knows who's really right.
The newborn song
Only that this doesn't last too long.
Of joy or sorrow?
Everyone's feeling ever so hollow.
The thought is almost gone,
Everyone's wondering where it went wrong.
Finished and done
You have to admit,
we had a great run.
