For Farrah (Fawcett) - Poem by Lamar Cole

A great beauty has passed from this life.
Of good times and sometimes toil and strife.
Some will say that she went to a better place.
Look at the blue sky or a white cloud, you will still see her face.

Movements like a gazelle in flight.
Hair that shone like gold on a moonlit night.
Eyes that could touch your soul.
And essence like that of a red rose.

Farrah, you fought hard to stay here on earth with us.
But when God calls you, go you must.
Whenever we feel a summer breeze or April rain.
It will seem like you are near.
And in our hearts, your memory will always remain dear.

    Farrah did change hairstyles that's for sure but I had Jaclyn Smith's poster on MY wall. But, correct me if I'm wrong Lamar, but didn't Farrah die many years ago? Or am I experiencing the Mandela Effect? (Report) Reply

    Wow! Seriously? This is incredible. PoemPunter out does itself again. I'm going to run straight out to the shops and look for a vintage poster to put up my wall. Just like I didn't have when she was alive. Beyond belief. (Report) Reply
