4 the Tears in Ur 👁S - (Posted on our FB Page)

(An end of year tribute to Prince, You & Us)



4 the Tears in Ur 👁s

As the year comes to a close we, as human beings,
typically, take stock of our lives and look at
where we are,
where we were,
what we're doing
and where we're going.
It's a time for reflection, I guess.

This year we can look back and see that Nothing's changed,

... except everything.

I will forever curse this year.
I will look at it as the year our lives changed …

for forever

The year that started off badly (Bowie)
Got worse (Frey)
More sad (Vanity)
And, finally, devastating (Prince)

And it was only April.

I still, eight months later, randomly come to tears
when something triggers a memory of him. Whether it's a song or a video, a movie or a protégé, It is only then that I am reminded (rather blatantly) that

Our Prince is gone

April 21st, 2016

We all fell to our knees in disbelief when we heard of the news
Actually begging that it was a mistake, that they meant someone else

Anything …

Anyone but Prince.

I know exactly how you feel
You know exactly how I feel

We lost a brother
We lost a friend

And neither time or prayers or meditation or anything
will ever make us feel better ...

Our Prince is gone

The irony will sit with us forever
Why didn't you take your own advice
Why didn't you punch a higher floor?

We will always wonder if he felt any pain
when he fell to the floor

We will always wonder if he was aware of his demise
As it was happening

Was he scared?
We will all wish we were there to catch him, to help him, to comfort him

Part of me wants to feel better for him now that he is done with this world

But I selfishly miss him too much

No, "he's not in a better place"
No, "it's not God’s plan"
No, I wont fall to those idioms and think "it's where he needs to be"

He needs to be here!
Receiving smiles everywhere he goes
Getting cheered every time he stepped out on the stage
Crowds parting for him when he stepped on the dance floor
Getting respect every day for the genius that he was
While he was still alive and young enough to actually enjoy it.

Presidents, kings, commoners and paupers ...
- all cried the same tears
- Said the same words
- and felt the same way

He touched us all in a way no one else ever did or ever will again

Our Prince is gone

... And the world will never be the same for me

... And I assume it will never be the same for you

- Stadium marching bands played tributes.

- Countries around the world shined their most famous monuments In a royal purple for his royal badness.

- And a state will make his birthday a holiday and call him their favorite son

Not bad for kid who felt like he didn't belong

(And for a while he didn't
- and neither did we
- and it was beautiful!)

But, when all is said and done the truth is …

The cold, hard truth is ...

That He is gone.

Our Prince is gone

And we will forever be feeling that reality

And whether we like it or not
Whether we accept it or not
This is what we'll have to deal with.

But ...

- We still have each other
- We still have ‘the org’
- We still have his music
- And we still have our memories

And until we, in our own demise, ride that purple banana …
It'll just have to do.

This was for the tears I cried these last eight months

This is 4 the tears in ur 👁’s too

Our Prince is gone
But, Let's keep getting through this together.

I was with you up until the following:

No, "he's not in a better place" No, "it's not God’s plan" No, I wont fall to those idioms and think "it's where he needs to be" He needs to be here! Receiving smiles everywhere he goes Getting cheered every time he stepped out on the stage Crowds parting for him when he stepped on the dance floor Getting respect every day for the genius that he was While he was still alive and young enough to actually enjoy it.

Yes he is in a better place! Yes it was God's plan the same plan that Prince has worked so hard for! and yes he's where he needs to be getting all the respect he's getting except 10 times more in heaven then here one earth. The only thing that bothers me his how he left this world and that we didn't get to view him sleeping peacefully, getting the much needed rest he deserves one last time. That would've brought some closure to me instead of cremating him right away, but I already knew that's how he would want things.

Thank You, June 7!

I too still cry.

I'm a 46 year-old-man, raised on Prince and all things Paisley.

At times I cannot believe The Truth. It is just too sad.

I have still not been able to play a CD in its entirity.

I can't bring myself to watch "Purple Rain" when it's been on TV of late.

It isn't possible to wake up from this year and realize it was just a nightmare...

Nope - I'm awake and it's still a nightmare.

While I'm happy to know I lived in the time of Prince, I am very sad that future generations will only refer to him in past tense and not know of his greatness when he walked this earth.

I am so thrilled at the times I have spent in the company of like-minded people, standing in concert lines, talking to you all "here" about him, and anticipating the next release, tour, video, headline, etc.

And now, as the year closes, I've watched as many tributes on TV as I can (award shows or retrospectives) because - really - I realize it may be the last chance they talk about Prince or pay respect to him.

Every now and then, a lyric will come into my head that reminds me... and I start to cry.

I have collected all official releases prior to April 21, and have a small collection of bootleg material, as well as posters and tour programs, protege releases, videos, etc. and now it seems to be stuck in a space I don't know what to do about. In some ways, they are priceless (to me) and in other ways they are meaningless because without him... they are ??? I guess I am just sad because I am still angry that more hasn't been made of his death. I can't even put the blame on anyone (nor is it my place) even though I feel he has been taken from us... too soon... too suddenly... too unbelievable.

The world just won't be the same without him.

And neither will I.

June7 I am in tears right now reading this. You took what I've been feeling and wrote it out perfectly. What a beautiful post. I like all of you am still so very sad. It's gotten easier to listen to his music but there are still some songs I still cant be alone and listen to. I know I dont post here alot but I do check in everyday and it was all of U that helped me grieve and get through what will always be the greatest of loses for me. I lived, breathed, cried, sang his music since I was 7 years old...that's 34 years of purple love!

Thanks again! Big bear hug to all my fellow orgers!

Absolutely perfect. You eloquently put into words our thoughts and feelings about a loss so deep it needs to be shared. I agree with everything you wrote. It was not his time. His death was a tragedy. In the struggle to make sense of it the only thing for certain is that life is a cruel bitch sometimes. Beyond grateful for the solace found here.

I completely understand what you're going through. Only in a way I experienced it totaly in an opposite manner. Since his passing I cannot play that many other music then Prince's. I got all official released music of Prince on my phone and had some other bands on there too. But since that day I can only play Prince's music. I just have to. I always have a sad moment, but once in a while it hits me little harder. No more tears, but just more sad. Yesterday watched the Montreux 2009 show again and then it just hits you again. The moment during "All This Love" when he "Gets funky" allways triggers an enormous feeling of joy, so big it almost gets me emotional. Only yesterday that feeling is so mixed up................ I cannot even explain it.

All I can say is I'm there with you, but keep his music playing!!!! It's a good thing!!

I live in Australia & I am the same age as you & completely feel the same way.

I have started playing his music again as it makes me smile!! I struggle watching interviews , but watching him smiling on stage brings back some fantastic memories of following Prince for more than 30 years.

The thing i find hard to deal with is that his music seems to be everywhere now, for example I went to watch my Favourite Rugby League team play in Sydney in September & the cheergirls danced to Kiss!!

I am really missing not reading any news about tours , Live shows etc....

Music has taken on a less significant part of me, but I will always love Prince.

What a touching post, and some of your responses chime with me very clearly. It's been the worst year for many of us, I hope 2017 brings some light...

Without Prince walking around, giving me a regular source of excitement in my life, it'll be more difficult than in the past but we must all push on. He'd want us all to follow his example and get the most out of life that we can.

I just wanna retract what I said and say it a more positive way. I reread every single word of what you said and I agree with you and everyone else on this tread 100%. I guess the part that I highlighted I just want to believe he's in a better place and that it was God's plan.

I lost my father 16 years ago and I was torn between wanting him to still be here for us and him going on to a better place. So I get it now. It's like you said eight months later I/we are still in mourning.

Thank you for this because yes tears are still in my eyes eight months later. I cry in joy to his music and sadness to his passing. His loss has been a very profound tradegy in my life. His death has thought me a lesson though. Don't ever let a special moment with the people or things you hold dear in your life slip by without being mentally there enjoying every minute. It's easy to take someone for granted thinking they will always be there the way I did with Prince. Weirdly, as much as I hate this year, I don't really want it to end because he was alive this year. He was here eight months ago this year, and I won't be able to say that in 2017. I want to move on in my grief, but I don't want to move on because I'm afraid I'll move on too much...
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending, but all good things they say never last. Love it isn't love until it's past. ~RIP my Prince~

It's easy to take someone for granted thinking they will always be there the way I did with Prince. Weirdly, as much as I hate this year, I don't really want it to end because he was alive this year. He was here eight months ago this year, and I won't be able to say that in 2017. I want to move on in my grief, but I don't want to move on because I'm afraid I'll move on too much...

.

I honestly do wish I could move on. This profound sadness that strikes every two or three hours, or during a song, an interview, a video, a story, a post, a picture, a memory or even the color purple, is starting to take its toll. I keep telling myself "I'm not going to lose my shit today" and then I read something like this and I'm right back to April 21st all over again, thinking about what we all lost that day. There is no replacement, there's nothing to fill the hole, the void, or my soul and I just don't know how to "move on". I'm stuck!

.

And before you say it - talking to a "professional" is NOT the solution. Can't talk to someone who could NEVER understand this. Hell, I don't understand it myself, how can I expect someone else to?

.

So June7 - you hit the nail so hard on the head it's bleeding. He's gone... Somehow we just have to suck it up and get through the day - somehow.

.

But with every fiber of my being, I still wish he was here with us

Sweet wind blew
Not a moment to soon.
I cry when I realized
That sweet wind was you.
(Tears go here)

Beautifully said, thank you. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, wish he was still here.

I am devastated.
Thank you for this post.Our Prince was so young...
His music was his life and gladly we have tons of music released and hopefully unreleased.
It's all in his music,we have to play it forever and ever and whoever will be in control of it in the future,should make sure that the new generations get in touch with the work of such a genius.

Yes, even 8 months later I still am grieving (along with the rest of you folks). I am going to go to Paisley Park in May so that I can be where our Prince was. I need to sit and listen to the doves cooing overhead, knowing that Prince heard those same sounds when he was there. I need to 'feel' his presence. I want to be in the same space where he made his music. I need to honor him with my tears that I know I am going to shed there. I need to pay homage to the greatest musician and ever lived and the most wonderful human being that the Powers That Be ever created. I will always have a hole in my soul that his passing made.

You made me cry. I'm generally doing better, but this just hit home.

Today at work a coworker wondered if 2017 would be any better than 2016. I replied that it has to be; it's not like Prince can die again.

I just miss him so much. The world is a worse place without him in it. Eight months ago today a little piece of me died with him.

Thank you. Well said.
I don't believe this "he is in a better place" and "he knew" and this turn of phrase "he crossed" and "he passed". He died in tragic circumstances. He is no more. What a loss!
As a casual fan for 30 years it hit me harder than I expected.

Thank you so much for that. Thank you for your courage & resilience, tenacity to take the time and soul shaking effort to do something that I, as yet, can't face. And so thank you for lifting some of that atlasian burden for me, us for just a moment. Thank you also for not falling prey, giving in to the pyrrhic comfort of dogmatic 'pretty lies' and acknowledging the true, profound depth of our loss ...with hope. Thank you.

very nicely written. You expressed your thoughts well.

As a fan and follower every week. It is shocking that Prince is not longer with us. His music and art was so interesting. What you and Ben wrote really summed it up. Prince number one was human.

I miss him so much. I know logically he's gone but my heart won't accept it. He should still be here.
And why do I get jealous when I read about all his lovers...I haven't even met the man and if I did, I'm certainly not his type...53 year old plus size lady with blonde hair and blue eyes. These feelings are very weird sad

Sweetheart, I'm a 56 year old gay man and certainly not Prince's type and I get jealous of all of those women too! biggrin Prince was raw and pure walking sexuality and you and I succumbed to that side of him along with the sweet, shy side that he had. And those eyes......

Namelessfan

what a lovely beautifuful heartfelt eulogy u have written to/about Prince! Reading it brings big messy tears to my eyes.

If this helps you: I, the moron that I am, never saw Prince in person. I have liked or loved him since the early 80's; I've lived in a place where I could have seen him, but always let something get in the way (kids, work, money, fear of going anywhere alone, shyness, blah blah blah).

But you apparently espoused his greatness fully and first hand and I hope this brings you peacefulness and acceptance after the agonizing grieiving lessens.

Thank you for helping to keep his legacy alive. sorry for the little tiny letters.

A Fan
