"I'm a freak, I've been a freak my whole life. I just have to live with it, you know. I'm just one of those people. I'm not going to change the way I think or the way I feel to conform to anything."
-John Winston Lennon (1940-1980)


I hear your sweet voice

I feel you near

I see your face

You're still here

 

Your lips so thin and sweet

Your hair hangs over your ear

Your hands so strong but gentle

You're still here

 

Your voice surrounds my room

Your guitar rings in my ear

The gentle sweetness of your song

You're still here

 

You say "Give Peace a Chance"

a message impossible to mishear

Rejoicing in the yell "War is Over"

You're still here

 

And in 1980 a shot rang out

One that all could hear

It hit my one and only love

You're still here

 

You lives on in hearts like mine

All together we're

the ones who love you most

You're still here

 

They say to forget you

but so many things I endear

You have my heart forever

You're still here

 

Though born 41 years later

It always brings a tear

My love never to know me

You're still here

 

So I look back at the poster

And the cd playing here

And I decide

You're still here

 

 

-In honor of my first love, John Lennon
