I found this poem and I want to shared w/TCB
The Life That Is Gone
As the night gives way to the mornings dawn
Millions mourn the life that is gone.
The little boy born long ago
With the velvet voice from Tupelo
His life began with a humble start
The brightest star in his mother's heart
Life was hard for them back then
and at times they didn't know where to begin
How could they know how far he'd go
From that two room house in Tupelo
The quiet young man brought up right
who loved his Mother with all his might
That handsome face is etched in the minds
of the millions of fans he's left behind.
That velvet voice still rings in our ears
as we tenderly dab away at our tears
Yes the night gives away to the morning dawn
and we'll forever mourn the life that is gone.
