Dear Marilyn - Poem by Robert Siney
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.
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.
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.
