The last thing you did

Don, my main man,
i've known you almost all of my life
you were a legend, an icon, a symbol
you represented freedom and culture 
and expressed to the world what we were
besides what they thought we were
and you brought us music, that art
that we all share and the people 
that made that music all number one hits
from Elton John to James Brown
if it could be called soul you brought it to us
you were'nt outragious, outspoken or scandalous
just a deep voice in a suit announcing the next song
it's been a long ride on the Soul Train. you made history
and i never ever heard of you doing one thing bad
except the last thing you did

    I believe living in this world is the most precious gift we have! Why do such very special and talented people sometimes not understand this?

    Smile ˜ Nice tribute to a precious life but the Lesson that I would be reminded of most amid this all would be that without, "GOD THE FATHER" * An ending of ones life such as this comes as no surprise ˜ Love, John!:) ˜
