take me now
for all time
down into the darkness of forgotten souls
no more clowning
no more smiles
too much pain from the voices in my head
crying out to end all this instead
I look in the mirror and no more joy is seen
the audience is gone now
no more laughter, life no longer keen
so let the darkness take me
no more joy can I feel
so let the darkness embrace me
I am broken upon life’s wheel.
To one whom I never met, but was a hero not just to me but global, who made us laugh, made us cry, who granted wishes who could truly fly, gone too soon truly missed but will be immortalized in the work you left behind, remembered by those who loved you and enjoyed the way you worked.
rest easy and thank you thank you thank you
and to those that understand, to those that care, to those that suffer, know that someone, somewhere, cares and there is more than one such person in the world that will listen and be there.
