Landon long poem

Photo by Wolfgang Staudt

Well and now you are somewhere on the
Highway to Heaven or in the golden fields that
Never need a plowing, either way, you should
Be a saint by now ‘cuz you were an angel
When you were alive, you were an inspiration
To so many…a man of your word, a man not
Afraid to cry yeah you were one in a million
Kind of guy and I know the whole world
Mourned you when you died…
Well I hear tell your childhood and teenage
Years were hard pressed, to say the least
Still you managed to put those
Cumbersome issues behind you somehow,
Somewhere between Middle America and
Hollywood but all in all you never did let
Fame goes to your head…your smile was
Always genuine no matter how bad things
Got your faith always saw you through
The hard times and if someone needed you
Help you’d go out of your way to help them
‘Cuz you were just that good and kind…
Well I wonder if you’re still on the highway
To Heaven or in the golden fields that never
Need a plowing either way you should be a
Saint by now ‘cuz you were an angel, you
Were angels here on earth!

An ode of exceptional sensitivity. The construct is quite good. A poetry of high order.
