I switched on the TV set
with a cup of tea in my hand
I did not know what to expect
but not as I read the headlines
my mentor, my guide in Web
gone far away, as I learned, I wept
the light call upon his name
we would never remain the same
close in our heart
where there isn’t a doubt
to love, and despair
the cruelty of mankind
I hate it, why is it always like that
one that you love the most
taken suddenly, cruelly?
what happens to his family?
i can’t imagine, i cant
but i would always pray for them
dear Jai, Dylan, Logan and Chloe
be strong, we are sorry
for he shall not be there
but remains in our heart forever
condolences, we all seek to give
pray, and he shall rest in peace
Rest in Peace Dr. Randy Pausch
