Some words I jotted down about my Hero.

He had the upper range of a diva 

And the lower range of the bass, 

He sang with passion and power 

And his words I truly embrace! 


His stage mannor was incredible 

He blew the audience away, 

Not a single man could touch him, 

He's still remembered for it today! 


He could write songs about anything 

Whether it's love, hate or his cat, 

He's famous for much of his work 

To him we should all take off our hat! 


For years he seemed invincible, 

His energy flowed and never stopped, 

But as his disease progressed 

Of his energy and power he was robbed. 


When he could no longer perform live 

His recordings still carried on and on, 

Even when he could hardly stand 

He and his band reached number one! 


Even on the last piece of music 

He wrote and recorded with his friends, 

His voice sounded strong and dedicated 

To carry on right till the end! 


Although he is no longer with us 

He has shown us the path to follow, 

There are still millions of people out there 

To whom his music cannot wallow! 


Yes, he will live in my heart 

For ever as far as I'm concerned, 

He inspires me to carry on with life 

His fame and love is well-earned!
