From my heart, I want to thank you all for your positive responses.
I was going to mention something to the two negative comments made, but why jump into that cesspool.

It's a sad day and it was written yesterday morning in a two hour period before posting it. It helped me with what I was feeling to get it out, and I'm glad to see that it helped some of you, and that is what matters.

I've been trying to figure out what to say today.

I can't seem to think of nothing else but what

happened twelve months ago - then it came to me ...

I hope you enjoy it - June7


Twelve Months Ago

---

There was a reason to look forward to the concert stage

There was a message in the music, in the songs you played

There was a time where, when you showed up, I'd go

'Til I found out what happened just twelve months ago

---

There was Disorder, Controversy in the air that day

There were people losin' their minds - but all in different ways

I thought I was dying - I didn't care to know

When I found out what happened twelve months ago

---

I don't think it's possible to ever be the same

You brought your funk, you brought your style - you even changed the game

You always looked ahead, Third Eye on the road

But we never saw the Signs until twelve months ago

---

I know you didn't leave us the way you wanted to

I know you weren't close to finished with what there was to do

But, "Face Down (just like Elvis)" - the other King, and his supposed pro

You joined that silly club twelve months ago

---

As for us, we cry and we communicate

Talk about your life, when times were truly great

Talk about the Rain, the Times, the World, you know ..

But, it's been hard since day one - twelve months ago

---

I'm not ready to believe in this reality

This is not the way you go - it's not how you would leave

People all around you don't know (or too afraid) to just say 'no'

But, would we be any different if it were twelve months ago?

---

The people who waited for you and your songs to play

Never would have dreamed for you it'd end this way

Now everyboy's on this Purple Variety Show

But where were all these fools just twelve months ago?

-----

I still go to 'the Org' to get my daily fix

With Ben 'n Val, 'n Bev, 'n of course, Militant

Now, more than ever, we need to let them know

You didn't die in vain twelve months ago


----

I know my friends and family think these things are too intense

But, they never drank the 'cool aid', the never 'felt' the Prince

We'll never let you fade away, we can't, we know

That your life didn't end just twelve months ago

----

Another time, another place, we'll see you and yes ...

"Sometimes it Snows in April", but we'll see sun again

And we will party like we used to, like it's 1999

Twelve months ago you left us ... and someday we'll be fine.

I been crying too. It should have stopped by now
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

I'm a long-time reader/follower of this site, but I never post. I just had to post (in fact, I created an account just to do so) after reading this. What a wonderful tribute. I have been struggling for the past year to express my sadness, and this was just perfect. Thank you for writing and sharing.

seems there's a huge space of nothingness

when visualizing my now prince world

eye mean i know his memory is still with me

do eye miss knowing he's not here in my living sphere - yes

do eye still wonder about the whys of his quick departure - yes

does his music still resonate in the heart of my tears - yes

does his words to my favorites of his/songs seem to sting my soul - yes

is knowing he's no longer within my/our space in time

hurt like as a lover coldly leaving a love bond - yes a lot

but then one remembers the words

animated%2Bgifs%2B(35).gif

"Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last"


so what eye have to say

after a year of his departure

on this day,

eye will always love the man

from the outside in

eye never knew him personally

from inside of his he

yet 4 all his greatness he shared with me

eye will always see him a

beautiful creative musical geniuis

a harbinger of creative freedom 4

generations 2 come

x's infinity plus

a continuum of days n2 the future
