    broken hearts
    don't easily part
    with the life that touched them
    with timeless art

    nothing could better compliment
    the genius of his showmanship
    than the legacy of his eternal gift
    that we call entertainment

    he lives in rhythms heaven bound
    in souls that stretch the world around
    in tranquil melodies and sounds
    of his favorite song
    smile

    he lives in walks across the moon
    and every other dance you do
    in every soulful singers croon
    in every life gone too soon

    heaven rejoices
    while the family cries
    and i can see Michael, standing by
    asking the angels
    why oh why
    did they wait to give me flowers
    after i died

    Oh, I could just HUG you for this!

    You SAID IT!

    Even Joe Jackson made an earlier statement about him wishing Michael could have seen all the outpouring of love all over the world for him.

    No, sadly, all too often we don't "miss our water til the well runs dry."

    My favorite part was this.
    Yes, there were those who were just riding the "train," so to speak, for their 15 minutes of fame; but, mostly, people were genuinely mourning his passing and recognizing his musical life. Even I learned some things about MJ from the Memorial that I didn't know; and that was surprising cuz I useta be a Michael Jackson GURU! :lol:

    Anywho! Loved the poem! Your insight was spot on!

    Yes, another one joins the greatest venue up in "Soul Heaven."

    Can you imagine a concert with James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and Michael Jackson! WHATTA SHOW THAT WOULD BE!

    I've had my share, and part of others with the flowers, I cannot see, smell or inhale them later, I often wonder what the reason for that was.
    Deep and heartfelt piece poet, thanks for sharing this.

    Michael truly does live within us, oh yes, the memories. I hope he knew just how much he's loved. Touching write.
