A Life Taken Away

Sad Poems

On a cold December day

In nineteen eighty,

A man gunned down

On a New York street.

A man whom talked about

Giving peace a chance,

Was gone in an instant

Not a second glance.

A peaceful life lost

There was no pretending,

Eyes all over the world cried

For John Lennon.
