Goodbye, Pakistani Rose

In remembrance of Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated on 27 December 2007, in a combined shooting and suicide bomb attack during a political rally of the Pakistan People's Party in the Liaquat National Bagh in Rawalpindi. Today, my surname is Khan, one of the most common surnames in Pakistan.

Goodbye, Pakistani rose
May you ever blossom in our hearts
You were a ray of sunshine
In a place of the darkest night
You called out to our country
And cried out for justice and freedom
Now the star Bhutto who's true to Benazir
Watches over our people from the heaven

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a torch in the storm
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
On the longest road to Rawalpindi
Your leading figure's left long before
Your legend ever will

Bravery we've lost
These empty days without your voice
This torch we'll always carry
For one of our nation's greatest daughters
And even though we try
The truth brings us to tears
All our words cannot express
Your uphill struggle through the years

Goodbye, Pakistani rose
From a country lost without your soul
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion
More than you'll ever know

Goodbye, Pakistani rose
May you ever blossom in our hearts
Your leading figure's left long before
Your legend ever will

Goodbye, Pakistani rose
May you ever blossom in our hearts
Your leading figure's left long before
Your legend ever will
