Remembering Whitney Houston - My Songbird (Poem)

Updated on February 11, 2015

You will always be in my heart

There you were from the start,

You will always be my songbird

No one can speak of you

A negative word,

I will always remember

The good you brought

The deepness of melody

That you taught,

As you sang to us with all of your heart

You were my songbird from the start,

You touched my heart, too! and

I will always love you!

I remember you singing to the world

They embraced you too with open arms,

You left us with a repertoire of songs

You will live on through your music not through wrongs,

No matter what the critics say that you have done

It will never amount to much under the sun,

My songbird has gone she has flown away

Through this poem I can truly say,

I will always love you!

Remember songbird through her heartfelt melodies

Yours may be, “I believe in miracles” and

I truly do!

Whereas mine may be, “I will always love you”

Her song remains in our hearts

I will always remember the strength of her voice,

And how she inspired my heart to rejoice

Proclaiming that she would always love,

But, songbird I will always love you

I will through her songs recall all of the good,

She inspired in my heart

Yes, she was my songbird from the very start.

      Thank you for sharing this poem of your father's. It is so positive and that's the way we should remember Whitney - a lovely songbird whose beautiful voice we enjoyed and always will.

      I miss Whitney too, your dad must have been a very strong influence on you, as your writing styles are very similar.

      Thank you "bookandetccritic" for your like of this poem. Unfortunately, my father passed away in January 2013, he was 88 years old and wrote this poem in 2012, after Ms. Houston passed away. Have you asked your father for words of wisdom, they are full of stories. Keep your note-book handy, to take notes (smile).

      I think it's, beautiful that you have a poem posted up written by your father. I only wish my father would write through his heart and give me his poems to publish. I think this is beautiful.
