goodbye whitney

such a formal occassion this is
having come in spiritual attendence
to the departing of a friend
it's sad but it is a fact well known
living that type of life style
next thing you know your gone
you were truely a chapion
at the head of your game
very few in comparison
could compete with your name
you were a Diva with a capital D
Divine in measure 
you brought to the world
endless pleasure
and suddenly, unexpectingly, surprisingly
they say you've gone
your body is here, but no one alive
can bring you back
not even for one more show
i wonder how Aretha must feel
having lived longer than you

    She sure was a powerful presence in the music worl. Her music is wonderful and the loss is too bad. A lovely tribute!

    I would give serious consideration to dropping the last 2 lines of the poem as they seem rather out of place for a tribute type poem.

    Sad Sunday in the news. Another shocker for the blues. We'll hear her voice for ever more. She died too young, whatever for?
