The Very Best of Men
A Tribute to Robin Williams
Dear Mr Williams,
What a legacy of joy you now leave behind,
YOU, who gave the world so much, too much,
that you left nothing for yourself behind.
Starved from your own making - the lesson of the "art of giving" now reminds us all that you first have to put something back into you
So busy you were making the world laugh
making us cry
that you did not recognise the black circles swirling inside your mind.
Too brilliant in your speech and so clever with your "stage door smile" but what a facade,
you too laid beside a monster each night.
For all you gave the world,
it is so sad that not one person could help you "brave" those demons,
I hope peace found you quickly and removed the torture from your soul.
