An Eulogy poem to Dr Toh Chin Chye.

We see a small man with a big heart
Every step he took left a deep foot-mark
Yet, we would never have noticed
The little figure among the giants
Is himself the giant of all.

Unassumingly modest as a powerful man
But never exhibit his force on his cohorts
His greatness needed no exhibition..
For we judge not by the power of man
We ascertain a human by the power of love.

And in love and benevolence,
Dr Toh had assisted many
By the nature of his sincerity
We love this man of his nobility
For the impermanence of life took him away

But his legacy would forever never sway
RIP Dr Toh, is there a life compared
Who would ever thought that a little man
With a heart made of solid gold
Has become the founding S'pore heir !!
