A Final Tribute to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, from the Democratic Progressive Party of Singapore.
A man of passion, a man of pain,
Who gave his life, for us to gain.
A man of belief, a man of blood,
Who stood against history, and fought the flood.
The flood of odds, that we would live,
The pain of judgement, that others give.
Who was Singapore, in history past?
Who is Singapore, today at last.
No one knew who Singapore was.
Everyone knows now, all because
Of a man so human, like me and you,
A man the world calls, Lee Kuan Yew.
The above was penned by Mr Benjamin Pwee, fellow Cambridge alumni, former interpreter, note-taker and speech-writer of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, and now Secretary-General of the Democratic Progressive Party of Singapore.
