Robin Williams Dead Good Night Forever Vietnam So Sad

Dead Poets Society was a great film but never in this poet’s  wildest dreams
Would he imagine that Robin Williams today has passed from our earthly scene
What an incredible talent that could make anyone on this planet smile
And then break into a flood of laughter more powerful than even the flooding of the Nile
What an incredible talent that we have going forward lost
A subtle reminder of what addiction and alcoholism costs
The family has requested the ability to in peace grieve
So we fans and mortals have only tears on our floors to leave
I have never been able to ape the comedian’s special touching skill
Only to admire the way laughter cuts through a way too serious will
Nor have I ever understood how in making people laugh as opposed to making people cry
Might in some way, so sad make a great comedian want to die
Robin Williams I believe there is a God who is waiting for you to arrive
Too many tombs on chaos in the world for even his sense of humor to survive
Of all others who have precede you, you with Good Morning Vietnam are the one
To bring a sense of laughter to our Father shedding tears at what we humans here have done.
