John Lennon

Imagine if he'd lived,
The words he would have sung,
The songs he could have crafted 
Had he not died so young.

Imagine if he'd lived,
If death could be reversed.
Would he still be promoting peace   
Across the universe?

Imagine if he'd lived,
Would people still believe
That he was just a dreamer
Dreaming double fantasies?

Imagine if he'd lived,
The truths he would have sought. 
But instant karma failed him
With one fool and four shots.

Imagine if he'd lived -
But we're the dreamers now
Dreaming of the many ways
To make the wheels go 'round

    Huge JL and Beatles fan! Outstanding tribute you have here! The weird thing is I had the exact same idea awhile back... Mine's called "Imagine Nation". Lol Perhaps we should fuse them, along with others, and create an epic series in his memory? Great work!

    What John and his wife Yoko could have produced in music leaves a lot to be imagined. Nice write about this talented man whose life was unfairly taken too soon.
