Remembering Whitney Houston

Ode to An Angel with a Golden Voice


Like a bell pelting the air

Your voice resonates like flare

You’ve touched the heart of millions

Ever increasing are your minions


Drawn away by your golden voice

The girl with a golden touch

Is always the people’s choice

Was your success too much?


How you have touched our heart

With your singing prowess

And your acting part

You’re an exceptional actress


Oh, why oh why behind the curtain

Life perhaps could be so uncertain

The sadness that engulfs you

No one could take away the blue


When did it snap?

You didn’t get over the mishap

Now you’re gone forever

All we want is to remember


What you once were

Etched in our heart’s ever

The Whitney that we love

An angel sent from above...

One Moment In Time

      She had a nice voice, that's for sure... I wonder why they won't release her report yet?

      A beautiful ode Raci and your choice of song is perfect.

      It was a sad life and sad end but her music and the memory of her angels voice will never die, her songs will live on.

      When I read your poem, it reminded me that Whitney Houston’s voice circled the globe and touched people of all ages, gender, races, and religions. When she sang, we all shared a moment of the universal quality of harmony that exists only in music.

      Great tribute to a beautiful singer and fine person. It's to bad about her death, the scourge of drug abuse is a hard devil to fight off once he has you in his grip. I know I battle him day to day. nice poem for Whitney.

      One of the great gospel voices to be heard, the voice of an angel when she was younger. It is a shame and this is a lovely tribute.
