Eyes with life’s light fading.
Greater than life in a continual race
Against mechanical parts
Which once could not stand the
Knocks and beatings during the heat
Of extreme fast driving.
In spite: World Champion three times
But the greatest champion of a
The pain in a last half-portrait
Expresses in fine lines his life’s story
Ruled by fate into his facial skin.
A brave man among the bravest.
A hero of Formula 1 race tracks
Known throughout the world
In a last race toward the stars
With his undying spirit
That’ll remain with all of us.
