A Tribute

It was sometime after midnight
The shot heard ’round the globe
Robbed many of their hero
Depression overload

He’d found no easy answers
No escape from life’s deep fix
Regrets and too much liquor
Proved a toxic, lethal, mix

For forty years remembered each
December thirty-first
The strong, yet soft, voice silenced
By an act without reverse

Our innocence was stolen
That bleak and fateful day
When desperation conquered
Leaving sorrow in its wake

Still, faithful fans will honor
And value Peter’s LIFE
His plans well-laid and life well-lived
Mean more than his death and strife

Remember not with tears, my friends,
This date that marks his passing
He lives within our hearts and dreams
Let peace become his blessing.
