Losing Famous People In 2016

I live alone with an estranged family. I write poems on Facebook to my friends; it helps my healing. I write very quickly in the moment, so my poems reflect emotional moments of how I am feeling at a particular moment in time.

Goodbye Stars

We loved you all.
Now you've had your call.
We saw you smile,
And all the while
You were living a dream.
Life in the movies, on the telly,
Is not what it seems.

We loved you all.
Now you've had your call.
You gave us music, laughter,
A story on the screen.
It was all worthwhile.
We loved you all.
Now you've had your call.

May you dance and sing and tell
A story up there,
And we will share
All you gave,
So here's a wave.
We loved you all.

Goodbye to all the actors, singers, and musicians who passed away this year.
