Heath Ledger

You were born Heath Andrew Ledger
To a loving family from a small town in Down Under
You grew up to become such a talented Hollywood superstar
That the world had had a privilege to see on the big screen

Your movie portrayals would become legendary
Whether you were the romantic cowboy Ennis Del Mar,
The insane Clown Prince of Crime the Joker,
Or the greedy selfish billionaire Tony Shepherd

You were such a master at acting
But overall there was one role you could not conquer
Your insomnia was your toughest role
And your films became the price you paid

But through your sleeplessness and work
You only clung to your daughter Matilda
Whenever you had a moment to rest
From the reality of your career

Even though you left this world at a young age
There is one thing that will always remain
Your movies will always live on
Just as your memory will
