, , , , , , ,

In the darkest hour.

Sorrow mixed with pills.

Booze, photos and an empty room.

The shell of a man sat alone.


Messages left, that were heard too late.

A singer’s life, an entertainer’s fate.

Cut short too soon,

so many left to wonder why.

So beloved by millions.

yet he was to die.



Forever more.

Forever young.

Never forgetting Australia’s son.

So as I play his final song.

I ask myself….what went wrong?



A mad moment in despair.

In a world that simply didn’t care.

Tears shed and hearts heavy.

Yet in the sky, a shining light.

A new star glows tonight.
