Farewell To Michael - Poem by Linda Ori

The end of an era,
The end of a dream,
An oreo cookie
Without any cream,
The deafening silence
That follows a scream -

Goodbye, M J

The end of the running
Of championship Bulls,
No more defying
Of gravity's rules,
Royalty's crown
Without any jewels -

Goodbye, M J

No more to drown
In intensity's eyes,
No more to ponder
The 'great one' who flies,
The sunlight has gone
From the 'friendly skies' -

Goodbye Michael Jordan


(In honor of the best of all time in the world of basketball)

    Linda,
    I meant to say what I have said next,
    but, what I did not mean to say is that you don't feel
    the same!
    Perspective is everything! ...
    that's all!

    Linda,
    I was all prepared to read something about a friend of yours,
    maybe someone that you lost in a tragic way! Not, a loss like this!
    Mortals come and go every day! In a way... Linda, I really do
    understand your devastation! He was the best that I have ever seen!
    ... but he didn't do it by himself! Scotty was O.K. too! And as much
    as I hate Dennis, he deserves his due! Some other guys were there as
    well! And Phil is proving now that is indeed the world's foremost spectator!
    When all is said and done, though - - - my hero is the guy from down
    the street, whose wife and kids are waiting for him to come home from Iraq
    B.V.A.

    It's always sad to see the 'greats' passing. Ali, McEnroe, Lewis, Jordan. This captures the essence of that process! A tribute worthy of the man's sporting prowess! xx jim (Report) Reply
