Tragic Miss Amy (RIP)

So sad to hear another talented & gifted female artist die so young ~ Amy Winehouse, one tragic soul haunted by her demons…….. we will miss her beautiful music.

Tragic Miss Amy (May you rest in peace)…

“Beautiful soul yet so sad
I wish someone could have reached out to you before you died.
Tragic Miss, tortured yet gifted,
I wonder whether there could have been another way.
Fame was all over your feet
Yet not enough to make you happy,
A lesson then you are teaching us
It can be lonely up there, everything is illusion,
Everything is vanity…
Yes, vanity of vanities,
As the wise has said,
‘Like searching for the wind.’

In the last moments of your life
What could you have been thinking of?
I wish someone could have said
“It is tough out there, but you can make it,
That there’s hope, you can find it,
Yes, there’s hope you can find it,
Hang in there.” ~ RIP Amy.

    i cant help wonder why nobody could reach out to her as you say, it must have been so lonely to have so many people around and yet no one there for you……

  • Oh Osha, what you said is so true….I don’t know her, but everytime I hear this kind of thing, it really hits me. There’s a sad world out there.

  • Hey Tam, thanks for the lovely clip. Oh, she’s such a fav, a talented girl quite blase with fame, not even knowing how good she is….a different singer from the ‘manufactured’ group whose music gets better with synthesizers. She is the real deal, in the talent department.
