John and Yoko

I would do anything to have
The kind of love that two people once shared
One was a famous British peace activist,
Guitarist, and one of the world's most famous songwriters

The other was a Japanese artist,
A very successful businesswoman,
And a very strict disciplinarian
Together they both shared success

As one of the many couples
That became both famous and infamous
They had a son who was their destiny child
One worked as an artist and managed their finances

While the other remained at home
Baking bread and becoming a househusband
Doting on their son and making his come back
Into the music scene on the billboard charts

I wish I could go through all the trials,
All the tribulations they both endured
But when it comes down to it
I wish I could love like John and Yoko did

    Mark David Chapman struck a terrible blow against the rest of the world on that infamous night in December of 1980. You have written everything very well and deserved to win with your entry.
