THE ROSE OF THE WORLD by Yomi Edward

2
 
Those who made the world smile
would never die unsung
their hand-prints shall eternally gladden the sky…

 

Those who made the world smooth
would never depart
in silence
their legends shall
eternally rock
generations unborn…

Those who made the world beautiful
would never parade the street unscented
their deeds shall
eternally be lubricated by the little man's eulogies…

Those who made the world smile
would never die unsung
the songbirds shall hum their names
the wind shall provide the rhythm
the trees shall dance
along with us
when we unveil
their names

the songbirds shall hum their names
the wind shall provide the rhythm
the trees shall dance
along with us
when we unveil
their names
like rainbow
in the sky…

would be
like rainbow
in the sky…

would you dare be
a rose to this world?

  1. Truly the Rose of the world is someone that leaves a landmark each and everywhere he or she goes. There is need to brighten the smile on peoples face in order to be sung when the whips of times get us out of this world. And we would never die unsung… HAPPY BIRTHDAY Yomi Edward- 11-09-11
