A Different Kind Of Sadness Read Count : 30

There’s a certain kind of sadness
When s celebrity dies
A certain kind of celebrity 
That I did idolize  

It was their gifted talents 
That thrilled me through the years
From all fields of endeavor 
When they passed I shed no tears

They were not family members
Or friend relationships 
But to their talent I connected -
Impressive significant gifts  

They were writers and actors  and singers galore 
 Poets and athletes some I adored
Many a joy I shared with my wife 
Part of the fabric that helped enhance 
life

The are missed- though their work carries on 
Through tapes and recordings  
They’ll never be gone  

The other sad thing only conscious
to some
When you live many years you consider the sum
These wonderful artists faded and died
My years too are fading 
No sadness to hide
