Farewell Natalie Cole

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

Goodbyes are difficult with strangers

but you were like family, like a voice that

calmed the world and made it appear

better and  happier. Calmer.

.

You and your dad, Nat, are singing

now because as there is a heaven,

and music is your destination, and well sung

lyrics are a part of heaven's arrangements,

we will see and hear you again.

.

Singing lifts all kinds of blues, creating

the sense of a fantastic playing field. Relaxing

and soul-piercing melody flows to us in a voice

on the radio and Yldie stations,  and are

remembered from historical listings on pop

charts. Sing, Natalie, sing.

.

Unforgotten, like Nina Simone, and Dinah

Washington, Whitney Houston, and Bessie Smith,

your work was done well here and will continue

be heard around tthe globe for a long time.
