Funny Man

The laughter has abated
Alas the presses cried
Tragedy has won again
A funny man has died
They said his sadness took him
They called it suicide
It seems the best life offers
Leaves us dissatisfied
Each day seems more difficult
In all this to abide
Where all the sadness welling
In our hearts is multiplied
So often we have seen it
Where humor has belied
The smile on the face
Masks the misery inside
Thank you for your laughter
My sorrow for your pain
The world has lost a funny man
Who brightened the mundane
Alas your great sadness
Wipes the smile from my face
Even though your joy made
The world a better place

The battle with addiction
The enemy within
So hard to best the killer
That lives beneath your skin
Life within the spotlight
Hero or heroin
The high price of celebrity
The winners seldom win

Thank you for your laughter
My sorrow for your pain
The world has lost a funny man
Who brightened the mundane
Alas your great sadness
Wipes the smile from my face
Even though your joy made
The world a better place


For Robin Williams with great sorrow
