On A Day Like Today

On a day like today,
When the sun rose, like everyday
The wind blew the leaves away,
And mortals scurried to make hay,
A life began, somewhere, this day.

A life that set many free as a lark,
Teeming with hope like a firefly in the dark.
And through his eyes the world seemed a land
Of unforeseen beauty,blessed by His hand.
And his songs did heal many a battered soul,
Like sunshine amidst the bitter cold.
His words did herald a new wave,
That swept away all who did emulate
To an elevated state of mind and thought,
To a deeper sense of self and its worth .

But just like a river runs its course,
And just like the waves crash onto the shore.
The harp of his life would play no more.
But his life defied death and Oblivion,
Alive in hearts,and still surging on.
And since his life blossomed,
On a day like today,
This day in May could never be,
Just another day!
