It breaks my heart to wake up without you,
You hid and made your way from Earth.

You made your mark,
you conveyed a silent message
that was dimmed by many.
For that, I respect you.

Your dreams and aspirations
are permanently put on hold,
I’ve been denied a chance
to talk and share the mic with you,
as I defended your name
when dragged down in my presence.

Please spiritually guide us as fellow artists
You left your stamps in our hearts,
You departed unexpectedly
Safe travel Ma.
