    Tears from the Brooklyn Bridge
    A daughter of the city
    Singing from the images in her soul
    No one thought her less than humble
    Their only thoughts...
    "She is so nice"
    "She is so pretty"
    "She is so talented"
    "How do you pronounce her name?"
    Aaliyah

    I don't know the magical meaning of her name
    I've only heard a song or two
    But I did see young people crying
    Tears mixed with words of admiration
    White, Black, Yellow, Brown
    Universal pain for one of their own
    The vulnerability of young people...
    So obvious when they cry from pain
    I felt them today

    I'll walk across that famous bridge
    The bridge belonging to Ronnie, Biggie and now Aaliyah
    I'll take the walk around mid-night
    When the sky produces matching stars
    On the Brooklyn side I'll stop
    I'll think of the millions who ask
    Why?
    I'll try to find an answer for them

    And as I watch my own tears
    Decend to the East River
    I'll think myself mature enough to say
    "God must need another voice for his choir"
    RIP Aaliyah
