Yasmin Ahmad: Gone Too Soon

Yasmin Ahmad
1958-2009

First Michael Jackson, now Yasmin Ahmad. The good, as it seems, always die young. And God is selfish this year. Really selfish.

Kak Yas, your creative genius, your humility, bravery, passion, compassion and your power to touch every living being will always be remembered. You make me proud to be Malaysian. You, in my opinion, are the one true Malaysian. May your work and your heritage continue to inspire us to be better Malaysians and human beings. Thanks from the deepest ebbs of our hearts for your unique touch. Al-Fatihah. RIP.

Gone Too Soon
by Michael Jackson

Like A Comet
Blazing ‘Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon
