I want to sing a song.
A beautiful song.
A sad song.
A fitting song.
Something like “Angel,”
By Sarah MacLaclan.
For the sweet. Innocent. Dead.
Could have grown up,
To be geniuses.
Like Amy Winehouse.
We’ll never know now.
All that potential.
All that talent.
I want to sing,
A song for them.
But the words,
The beautiful words.
Will only come out,
Maybe it’s better this way, Amy.
You know that I’m no good.

A sharp commentary, well done!
It’s as if the word “loss” is too small to adequately cover it.
Thank you for this.
Thank you, Ken. Loss is too small a word. What happened during that weekend of tragedy left a enormous gaping wound. Well, a metaphorical one, anyway…
so sad. well written
A saad and fitting commentary on a tragic day of loss. So many times, all we can do is ask, why?
