Whitney Elizabeth Houston: Gone Too Soon

A Tribute to a beautiful Lady with a beautiful soul...

A melodious voice was her forte
With perfect range she could sing anything
From nursery rhymes to R & B love songs
She rendered each one with perfect pitch

Her voice seemed to  sparkle; as clear as a bell
Thrilling audiences in church; filling concert halls
Nurtured by her Mother who sang Gospel tunes
Always her mentor at home and on world tours

Her gift was eagerly shared with young and old
How love for her expanded our globe
This journey was not always kind to her
She was taken to places she’d never been

And the  world was saddened by the change
Fans and family prayed and she survived the fall
She came back broken; we cried and loved her anyway
Whitney Elizabeth Houston, another genius at her craft… gone too soon!!!
RIP!

    We all have to go sooner or later, but this fine lady left us way too soon. Her recordings will always be around, but we will never see and hear her live in concert. Perhaps she will have a number of impersonators mimicking her sound and style in the near future.

    Annalise, I found out that Whitney Houston passed away by reading another poem here at the Soup. Dear Lord, she was only 48. Your dedication is a very apt one. Yeah, she was raised on Gospel....Aretha Franklin is her God-Mother. Another beautiful soul gone too soon.

    I didn't know Whitney died! Wow, this is a crazy way to find out. I just turned on the news to find out it is true. A touching tribute you have written.
