Whitney Huston. I will.
For the beauty of your voice
Lingers in the tremulous beat
Of a lover’s heart…
For the songs you gave life to
For the way you inspired with
“The Greatest Love of All”
For how you and Kevin Kostner
Made “Bodyguard” magical for me…
For you. A wonderful singer.
And I do not know more about you
Other than how much I will miss
Hearing your voice again, shake down
The blues that hit, unprepared
And for just giving me sustenance
Singing, “When you believe” with Mariah Carey.
For the pleasure of your songs
For the richness and honesty of your voice.
Rest in Peace, Whitney Huston.
