Poem: The Only Lonely One

The Only Lonely One (in Tribute to Amy Winehouse)

Too much too soon,
Too young to die,
You were not the only lonely one.
You just didn’t know it, did you?
And did we love you as a mess
As well as love you as a star?
What a star. What a life. What a waste.
But you had to know we were
Rooting for you.
You had to know we wanted you,
And wanted you to live.
You had to.
Didn’t you?
I don’t think we told you enough.
And I’m sorry for our loss.
