About J
I MET J THROUGH MY WORK AS A PHOTOGRAPHER. I GREW UP LOVING THE SOUL
CHILDREN. AND FOLLOWED HIM ON HIS SOLO DANCE. HE WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST.
THE LAST TIME I HEARD J SING. WAS A GOSPEL SONG THAT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY
EYES. SO TO YOU J, I WRITE THIS POEM........................

~~ROSE COLORED GLASSES~~
SOMETIMES I WISH, YOU COULD SEE WHAT I SEE,
THROUGH MY ROSE COLORED GLASSES, NOTHINGS UGLY TO ME.
FEILDS OF WILD FLOWERS, FAR AS YOU

About J
CAN SEE
ON THE WATER, THERES SHIPS SAILING OFF TO SEA.
THE FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING, THE COLORS ARE GREAT,
AND THE VINES ALMOST COVER, THE EIGHT FOOT GARDEN GATE.
WALKING THROUGH THE GARDEN, WATCHING BIRDS BUILD THEIR NEST,
AND DO THEIR MATING CALL, I THINK YOU KNOW THE REST.
THE BRANCHES OF TREES, ALMOST TOUCH THE SKY
WALKING  THROUGH THE FEILDS, OF THE YELLOW GRASS KNEE HIGH.
BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES, ANIMALS AT THE ZOO,
KNIGHTS ON WHITE HORSES,
Continued overleaf...
About J
AND THEN THERES YOU.
THE SONGS YOU SANG, TOUCHED MANY HEARTS,
AND THE MEMORY OF THOSE SONGS, WILL NEVER PART.
I WILL MISS YOU MY FRIEND, BUT THE ONE THING I LOVE.
IS THAT NOW YOU ARE IN A PLACE, LIKE THE ONE I DESCRIBED ABOVE.
THAT BEAUTIFUL VOICE, THAT EVERYONE LOVED.
WILL NOW BE SINGING, WITH THE BIRDS ABOVE.
