gone too soon.

the day that you were born

a lucky world it was

a hundred billion years all leading up to something


you are my gravity

the motion and the rest all at one time

keeping all the universe aligned

you are gravity

binding and loosening

there are countless things, you're all the space that's in between


the day that you were born

creation heard the sound

a hundred billion years just might amount to something


you are the fingerprint of life's own betterment

(from the song:  A Hundred Billion Years - Chris Castle)

born to amuse, to inspire, to delight

here one day

gone one night

like a sunset

dying with the rising of the moon

gone too soon.

(from the song:  Gone Too Soon by Michael Jackson)

Happy Birthday, my sweet funny boy.

Oh, how I wish we were celebrating together. 

I miss you.  So very much.

Love you.  To the Moon and Back.

This morning I woke up thinking about Michael. And I will continue to throughout the day. And after. I love you. I am so sorry. A decade can completely change the world forever. His mark on his decade certainly has.
