The Legend that is Love.

The legend that is LOVE.

I cannot escape the voices,
Your words of love and harmony,
A vision of the world at peace
Came flooding now all over me.
Since you left us here in distress,
So much pain, has filled your void,
Brother now I miss your message
Where peace and love could be employed.

Family would be a prime example,
Of how we’d work to live at peace,
But I’m still seeing, far too much anger,
In a world where hatred will not cease.
Could we yet give up this passion,
To be full of pain, and soul dis-ease?
Should we pray for days you’d imagine,
Where only love and peace increase?

High on life and in this mountain,
I have cried to be set free,
Knowing you have guarded the secret,
And how your love washes over me.
Who could know the gift you’d brought,
When you could sing of love for all?
Who would know the evil slaughter,
Where to the pavements you should fall?

Thank you John, you are my legend,
All in colours so bright and clear,
It’s like the time, stood still beside you,
When you imagined love, that brought us near.
We all still miss your voice of courage,
Sang in melodies so strong and proud,
We shall ne’r, forget your daring,
To sing for love and peace out loud..!

A new song, same message, same love, same spirit.
