A Tribute...Been awhile......
It was a long time ago
I saw the twinkle in your eye
And your wide glowing smile
Like as if you knew
That you belonged on Angel Avenue.
Your highs were high
And your lows were low
One never knows how deep it goes
The smiles manic and the eyes so wide
Was it happiness or an act of pride.
One time you were king
And then the world took a swing
Like at the many others before you
Who knew that their time was done.
I only wish that I could have saved you
But no one can save someone from themselves
I have known others like you
That fought the storm and lost their shirts
But never found the deeper hurt.
Somehow they are still standing
And fighting off the devil
At a whole other level
Like the storm in your head
And the hurricane that left you dead.

Since Yelp doesn't cover all local businesses, I thought this would be a good venue to let people know about local concerns and more.
