Gone Too Soon...



Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

 ~ by  MJ ~


if i could pick one specific moment in time when i first realized how beautiful poems could be written.... by just putting out your innermost thoughts and feelings out on paper without any inhibitions holding you back...
how the right words when written in the right way could express something so amazing...

this was the "one" that started it all for me

at a young age...i was never really a fan of MJ or his music ... but growing up with an older brother who was just completely fascinated by the king of pop... i definately had my share of MJ music "residue" in the house all the time.

one day... out of pure curiosity... i put on one of his MJ "dangerous" cd and was going through the cd booklet because it had so many pretty pictures with angels and babies and fantasy - peter pan - never never land kind of images in it...(pretty pictures never fail to draw me in hihi)

then this song came on with it's disney / fairy tale like presence...

as i read along the lyrics in the booklet .. i was in awe... of the simplicity and childlike wonderment of how this song was composed...

i mean... aren't "lyrics" just basically "poems" accompanied with music read melodically aloud in a singing voice?

the lyrics were so utterly beautiful that it somehow painted a perfect picture in my imagination and led me to a place of love and innocence...

somehow though the years... i found myself writing poems from then on and i always get inspiration from the simple beauty of things in life that always seem to resonate back to the contexts of "gone to soon"...

flowers...rainbows... sunrise... sunsets... shooting stars... oceans...
the sky and the moon...

love..
life...
beauty...

and all its glory.
