Gone is the excitement of seeing him on stage;

Now we only see him in movies or on a magazine page.

We see him in our dreams and always in our hearts,

And then the blues set in and the teardrops start..

There are times it seems we cannot bear the pain,

But this is only at night and in the sunshine and the rain.

Then we remember his strength and pride

And feel a little ashamed of the times we cried.

He would not approve of our being so sad,

But he would understand why we feel so bad.

We loved him so and this he knew,

And we will love him even after our lives are through.

Oh, how we miss him, how our hearts bleed,

Remembering his compassion and all his good deeds!

No one has ever done so much for the multitude

With kindness, understanding, and being humble, never rude.

If more people would use his manners as a guide,

This world would be a much better place in which to abide.

Graceland stands there like a lover who has lost her mate,

Lonely, even though thousands still stand at the gate.

The grounds look devastated and the stables are bare;

The master is gone and still we stand there and stare,

Wanting so badly for him to appear,

Forgetting for just a minute that he isnít here.

The we remember, his mansion is now made of gold

And sits in the heavens where no one grows old.

We will thank God every day

For sending Elvis our way,

For letting us know how it feels

To have in our midst a Wonder thatís real.

He was always full of good cheer

And shared it with us year after year.

He took our worries, problems and cares,

And in their stead left us something very rare,

ďA part of himselfĒ to have and to hold in our sorrow,

Forever and ever, through tomorrow and tomorrow.

Could I Borrow One Tomorrow?


Could I borrow one tomorrow,
just one tomorrow please?
Could I borrow just one day... or even an hour
and live it filled with past memories?
Could I please see him on stage once more;
Smiling and happy as the instruments ring out the musical score?

Could I please stand at the Music Gate, filled with delight
And gaze at his beautiful face as his car comes into sight?
Could I speak to him and hear the southern drawl
As he pulls away saying, "See you all"?

Could I stand in line from dusk to dawn,
On the hard pavement or even the dewy lawn,
And buy another ticket to see the "Greatest" perform;
I would not complain about the weather; sunshine or storm,
Or the seating arrangement, the lighting or the sound.

If I could please borrow one tomorrow
and once again look upon him spellbound.
Could I please feel his touch, just once more,
Like the last time he held my hand as I walked out the door,
Unaware that I was walking away from a dream and into forevermore?

Could I borrow just one tomorrow, just one tomorrow please
And live it to the fullest with my beautiful past memories?

This part is beautiful...

"There are times it seems we cannot bear the pain,
But this is only at night and in the sunshine and the rain.
Then we remember his strength and pride
And feel a little ashamed of the times we cried.

He would not approve of our being so sad,
But he would understand why we feel so bad.
We loved him so and this he knew,
And we will love him even after our lives are through."

Thanks for sharing this poem. :]
