**Robin Williams 1951 – 2014**
I really don’t recall being that effected
by the loss of someone i didn’t know at all.
I knew I wanted to meet him,
someday have an opportunity
to shake his hand
feel his remarkable presence
as he stood before
one human being
and one amazing rock star.
When that time was taken away
I didn’t want to live another day.
About three days after listening
every Beatles song ever written,
‘Happy Christmas’ stopped my car
at the local Shopko and I cried right there.
Last night when the news came in
I watched in disbelief as all of your accolades
were displayed on every network,
every laugh they could find in a few short hours
to celebrate the life of a man that made everyone
I realized a few minutes ago, when I’d read
one more testimony on what a great guy you are,
I realized as the tears came into my eyes,
I hadn’t cried since Lennon died
over someone with your stature,
untouchable but beautiful.
“Oh Captain, My Captain”
What have you done!
