Something good happens
when a celebrity dies,
we all claim a piece
and everyone cries.
We stop and recall,
just for a short while,
where we first heard them
saw friends, families smile.
The thing I remember,
as we salute Prince,
is how hearing his music
made my daughter dance.
Laughing, head bobbing,
she let her freak shine
that New Year’s evening
nineteen ninety nine.
So, before I move on
with my everyday things
I wish Prince good journey
to the heaven of kings.
Not ’cause I knew him,
I hadn’t the chance,
but for how his guitar
made my daughter dance.
