Dear Marilyn - Poem by Robert Siney

Dear Marilyn,
This big world was too cruel for one so fragile,
It’s no surprise you broke down once in a while.
Your smile inspires but it still brings on tears,
In your beautiful eyes, I still see your fears.
Why doesn’t the world respect you as I do?
I want everyone to know all about you.

Dear Marilyn,
They recall your glamour but ignore your soul,
Choose not to listen to what they’re being told.
But I’m sure I see you differently somehow,
I feel I know you when I look at you now.
I understand your torture and feel your pain,
In some ways Marilyn, we’re one and the same.

Dear Marilyn,
I’ve never wanted to be your leading man,
Just a friend to support and help when I can.
When you stand up tall, I’ll be there beside you,
Together we’ll fight the demons inside you.
But I hope they’re now gone and that you’re content,
Back up in Heaven, from where you were first sent.
I so wish you were here but at least I know,
Nobody will forget Marilyn Monroe.

    You handle your subject with the sensitivity that she deserved,
    yet never got in real life. The beauty of her fragile moment
    lingers. You have captured its essence in your nostalgic poem.

    Her life was such a tragedy and her death should never have happened in that way, at that time. A wonderful tribute and a pure soul. A '10! '

    Great tribute to a glamorous memory. I was only 15 when she died and I remember how I felt that day, it was as if Beauty had died. (Report)Reply
