Ambassador Vijay Joypaul

We mourn Vijay, our brother in arms

We bonded at John Kennedy College

Where he looked after books helping the boys

Sail through pages of stupendous marvel.

Life split us but once more together years

Later at Foreign Ministry he shared

– An astute mind and a prodigious pen –

His extensive knowledge of world affairs

In a country where light is snuffed or dimmed

His stood at the crossroad of East and West

A colossus who had nothing to prove

Also a sage who calmly showed the way.

I may be mourning now but here you are

In our midst telling us not to grieve!

Joseph Tsang Man Kin
