Poem's stories and comments

How can we say goodbye? We don’t.

What if we were to forget? We won’t.

You were a part of a group for a long while.
You were a brother, father, and friend with style.

You were a husband, uncle, son, and a man.
You were courteous and kind whenever you met a fan.

You found your dream when you were young.
You shared this dream in the songs you had sung.

Your music is but one legacy.
That will endure for all eternity.

You may be gone but it will be just for a while.
For I believe that someday we will again hear your song.
And see your smile.

Phyllis Tillman
