TWELVE MONTHS AGO ...
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
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.

.That was amazing...
That's lovely, but do we need two rememberance stickies?
Wow, just wow
Thank God this ain't Monopoly
U'd make us all go back 2 start

"Rotterdam, we come to jam!"
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.
A short 12 months. Lotsa Prince 2day. I fear his spirit is grieved.

Thank you for sharing...
Oh man, this is beautiful. You made me cry...
I'm not stopping. I haven't even taken my coat off
C'mon and dance while you, while you still have your cherry babe, cherry babe..
Beautiful. Captures the essence of what so many of us are feeling but can't always articulate.......
Today is the tomorrow you forgot about yesterday....
Wow! Just wow! Thanks for the beautiful words.
There is too much snow in Hollywood!
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.
Simply, beautiful!! PRN, in our hearts always!!

Luv that is great. Thank you
Beautiful, thanks so much!!
Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above.
RIP Sweet Prince
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.
Again thank u June 7, that was so beautiful and heartfelt.
Wow, this gave me the chills to read. So, so good. Thank you June7 for creating this for Prince, for you, for us all. Much luv!

From my heart, I want to thank you all for your positive responses.
I was going to mention something to the two negative comments made, but why jump into that cesspool.
It's a sad day and it was written yesterday morning in a two hour period before posting it. It helped me with what I was feeling to get it out, and I'm glad to see that it helped some of you, and that is what matters.
