Clyde Akbar, a name so dear,
A man of many talents, so sincere,
A Purple Heart recipient for Vietnam War,
A true hero, one can't ignore.
But his life didn't stop at that,
He took up swimming, a new hat,
Learned at 60, he dove in with zeal,
And became a master swimmer, for real.
With his violin, he played sweet tunes,
Melodies that could make hearts swoon,
And as a cheerleader for Swim Ft. Lauderdale,
He inspired all, young and old.
Clyde's spirit, infectious and bright,
Shone like a beacon in the darkest night,
His determination and zest for life,
Inspired others to push through strife.
A true inspiration, a role model to all,
Clyde Akbar, stood tall,
A man of many talents, so full of grace,
May his spirit continue to light up this place.
