Les Horne was always there ………Poem by Betty Makoni

There is a time when I meet people with a purpose
There are moments when such people are with points and pointers
Such people are always there even if my audience be counted as one
They fill the space not with numbers, but their love and compassion
They are not there as VIP (Very Important People)
There are just there with no VI (Very Important) but just people
Attentive ears and solid solidarity
One man who stands out amongst such people is Les Horne
Les Horne was just always there ……………………………………..

Today I mourn for a man whose seat at front row middle is empty
But whose compassionate spirit fills our hearts
The man I saw leading a big applause when I spoke
Now with this poem I know will raise his spiritual applause
A man who with his heart served children quietly and efficiently
A man who every time I touched land of Canada touched my hand
Made me stronger in moments of persecution back home
A man who believed in others and believed support to others was support to children
Children never his but fought for day and night
Founder of Defence for Children International
Les who was always there………………………………………….

Those who spoke he paid attention, he asked questions
Those who were new as me he sought to know and embrace
That seat Les Horne took to listen is one seat I know through and through
It`s empty and its emptiness leaves quite some void
Even as he physically not there because he was always there
Les Horne is always here now, spiritually
For how can only today he not be here
When
he was on time here always
Les Horne is and was always there ……………………………………

Rest In Peace Les Ducove . Peta satelit dunia .
