In Memoriam

They who think that you are gone,
Because no more your face they see,
No more Good Morning Mr. President columns,
Are wrong, for in our hearts you live
And always will in memory.

We think of you with love today
As we have done so often,
And feel once more the bitter blow
That does not seem to soften.

Wishing today as we wished before
That God could have spared you many years more.
In our heart your memory is kept.
To love, to cherish and to never forget.

Rest in Peace Mr. Hydara.

Dedicated to the memory of Deyda Hydara who was murdered one year ago today. His killers have not been apprehended as of this writting. Mr. Hydara was the editor of the Gambia’s Point Newspaper at the time of his murder.
