TWELVE MONTHS AGO ...


I've been trying to figure out what to say today.

I can't seem to think of nothing else but what

happened twelve months ago - then it came to me ...

I hope you enjoy it - June7


Twelve Months Ago

---

There was a reason to look forward to the concert stage

There was a message in the music, in the songs you played

There was a time where, when you showed up, I'd go

'Til I found out what happened just twelve months ago

---

There was Disorder, Controversy in the air that day

There were people losin' their minds - but all in different ways

I thought I was dying - I didn't care to know

When I found out what happened twelve months ago

---

I don't think it's possible to ever be the same

You brought your funk, you brought your style - you even changed the game

You always looked ahead, Third Eye on the road

But we never saw the Signs until twelve months ago

---

I know you didn't leave us the way you wanted to

I know you weren't close to finished with what there was to do

But, "Face Down (just like Elvis)" - the other King, and his supposed pro

You joined that silly club twelve months ago

---

As for us, we cry and we communicate

Talk about your life, when times were truly great

Talk about the Rain, the Times, the World, you know ..

But, it's been hard since day one - twelve months ago

---

I'm not ready to believe in this reality

This is not the way you go - it's not how you would leave

People all around you don't know (or too afraid) to just say 'no'

But, would we be any different if it were twelve months ago?

---

The people who waited for you and your songs to play

Never would have dreamed for you it'd end this way

Now everyboy's on this Purple Variety Show

But where were all these fools just twelve months ago?

-----

I still go to 'the Org' to get my daily fix

With Ben 'n Val, 'n Bev, 'n of course, Militant

Now, more than ever, we need to let them know

You didn't die in vain twelve months ago


----

I know my friends and family think these things are too intense

But, they never drank the 'cool aid', the never 'felt' the Prince

We'll never let you fade away, we can't, we know

That your life didn't end just twelve months ago

----

Another time, another place, we'll see you and yes ...

"Sometimes it Snows in April", but we'll see sun again

And we will party like we used to, like it's 1999

Twelve months ago you left us ... and someday we'll be fine.

------

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Thank you,

I bought a new cd today. The single 'Fury'. That's how I want to honor him.

Forever love you my friend.

A feeling of self-worth will caress U,
The size of the whole wide world will decrease,
The love of God's creation will undress U,
And time spent alone my friend, will cease.

Happy 1st anniversary Prince. We all still miss U and we all still love U. Today has been a day of celebrating him. It will ALWAYS be about the music. None of the other stuff matters.

Absolutely beautiful. I am feeling so sad. Stevie Wonders radio station has played and still playing everything Prince. BET is playing all his videos. The TV stations are also honoring him. I hope he left this world knowing how loved and respected he truly was. pray

Again thank u June 7, that was so beautiful and heartfelt. sad
