    Description:
       This is an updated version of an old song of mine which I'd posted here some years ago called "Benazir". Sometime after that posting, she was assassinated and I was moved to write a prequel.... both pieces together became this song and you can hear it at

    Would like to know what you think of it

    dotsFULL CIRCLE: REQUIEM FOR BENAZIR (WINDS OF CHANGE)dots
    -------------------------------------------


    NOW:
    No solace now to help them cope
    A loss so hard to bear
    A nation on the brink of hope
    Dragged down to such despair

    You went out in a flash of heat
    In a searing flash of light
    Work unfinished, incomplete
    Their song was killed tonight

    Just as the crowds began to gather
    With the setting of the dark
    They were singing praises to your father
    When the mad man found his mark…

    Two thousand miles away I looked
    On as the tragedy did unfold
    The final chapter in this book
    A story left untold

    Now as darkness starts to gather
    Around your children too
    This requiem to your father
    Now serves as your cenotaph too


    THEN:
    Benazir, your father’s in the ground-
    Benazir, you watched them put him down-
    Benazir, your father lied- he’d promised not to die,
    And Benazir, you’d sworn you wouldn’t cry…

    Benazir, your face has turned to stone-
    Benazir, you do not weep alone…
    Benazir, the winds of change that wiped your tears dry
    Now blew your father’s killers from the sky…
    Benazir…
    Benazir…

      This was actually pretty good and seemed to capture the overall mood of the story in it with some of the words that you used to. Still, it felt like it was lacking something. Not sure what though. Very good, not quite great.
