Malaysiakini Letter

Tribute to the people’s Tiger

K Temoc  |  Published:  |  Modified:

I saw the Khalsa Warrior saddled up on his white steed

With steely eyes, a lion’s heart and strong moral kirpa

And ready to offer for the downtrodden his good deed

Even if that requires him to ride bravely into Nirvana

Indomitable, courageous, resolute yet conscionable

He was the people’s Tiger with a compassionate heart

No legal or political challenge for him was impossible

Even if he had to upset sacred cows and the apple cart

So he has ridden his faithful steed into the setting sun

Along a lush valley of fragrant lily and bunga cempaka

But he wants us to know his tasks are yet all to be done

With even more after he reaches the Golden Gurdwara

So we his heirs of conscience, of public responsibilities

Must pick up his mantle even as we bid our Bhai adieu

And continue unabated his discharge of righteous duties

So he can sit peacefully on the right side of Waheguru
