TEARS IN MY EYES

My eyes flood with tears
Every time I hear your voice or see your face
My heart fills with sadness
When I think of all you were and what you did

Have you seen my childhood?
It is filled with memories of you
Of pictures hanging on the walls
Endless musings, lyrics burned in my mind

Speechless, that’s how you made me feel
Spinning and sliding in the way only you could do
The saddest of it was being so misunderstood
Living the lie bestowed, trapped in your world

No one will ever know the mystery that was you
You gave so much, much more taken in return
In your own words sung with such sincerity 
 “…Everyone's taking control of me
Seems that the world's got a role for me…”

In our hearts you will always live
The little boy who wanted to heal the world
So also will all that you were and could have been
You never said goodbye but in that you are not alone

Rest in peace M. J. you need look no more.
