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