Goodbye daddy, you will always be in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself in the lives of everybody who knew you.
You called out to Africa, And you whispered to its spirit
Now you belong to heaven, And the stars spell out your name
And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset, When hard times set in
And your footsteps will always fall here, along the paths and trails you forged.
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will
Your love we’ve lost, these empty days without your smile
This torch we’ll always carry, even though we try
The truth brings us to tears, all our words cannot express
The joy you’ve brought us through the years
We love you always and forever x
