Rose Among the Thorns

You were there in the glory days

And you were there in the dark

Informing and letting us know

Every detail and info from the start

That tone of yours

Soothing, calm had us all on ears

Stories that gave us hope

And stories that gave us tears 

Spoke the truth and never backed down

You were one hell of a legend

Spoke for freedom and justice

Never did we give you credit

You stood out in the media

A rose amongst thorns

Gone but never forgotten

Your voice and your charisma we will mourn

And as you always signed off

“Merita Huch mo Tala Fou”

RIP Tofilau Merita Huch
