SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK®
NITANJU BOLADE CASEL
“They are falling all around me, the strongest leaves of my tree.
Every paper brings the news that the teachers of my sound are moving on.
Death comes and rests so heavy, your face I’ll never see no more….
But you’re not really going to leave me…
It is your path I walk
It is your song I sing
It is your load I take on
It is your air that I breathe
It’s the record you set
That makes me go on
It’s your strength that helps me stand
You’re not really going to leave me
And I have tried to sing my song right
Be sure to let me hear from you…..”
