The earth witnessed his majestic,
Pace along the shimmering streets.
How his head-held high-swaggered,
In the night’s twinkle from the lights.
He had thick dark glasses that covered,
His tire from a life of hiding all of it.
His full health of a solid mass of weight,
Dizzied in the wake of that love of old.
It was scary what a smile could hide,
He plugged to his musical symphonies
But floating memories clouded his will,
As hope wrestled with fear & weakness.
He gave in to a new kind of love,
Thus he ceased smiling with his heart.
Letting go of his longstay defiance,
The lengthy strain left him to give way.
