Oh, Captain
My Captain.
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.


You came to us as an Alien,
from the Planet Ork.
But through the Years,
You made Home in Our Hearts


We Saluted You over the Airwaves
We Watched You get Sucked in a Game,
And Haul Your Family in the Big Rolling Turd.


You were a British Nanny,
Who was actually their Dad.
A Business Man,
Who was actually Peter Pan.


A Crazy Scientist,
Making a Being called Flubber.
A Genie,
Who Just Wanted to be Free.
You were a Robot,
Made of Rusty Old Parts.


Oh, Captain
My Captain.
We’ve never had,
A Friend like You.


You became the Man of the Year,
And the Wax Figurine Exhibit
Of the Twenty-Sixth President
Of the United States of America.


You Were the World’s Greatest Dad,
And the World’s Greatest Therapist.
You Had a License to Wed
And be a Kid,
Who Grew Up Four Times Too Fast.


You only Won One Oscar.
But that’s okay.
We Love all Your Other Works Anyways…


Oh, Captain…
Our Captain…
We Will Miss You,
But Remember this…


You Will Always Make Us Laugh,
And Make Us Cry.
But We Know that,
You’re in a Better Place


Oh, Captain…
The World’s Captain…
Be Free,
Our Genie.
Robin Williams...he was a wonderful man. When I heard the news, I didn't know what to think. All I could do was watch in despair and fall to my knees, crying. I wish he wasn't taken too soon...but I know he's in a even better place now. I grew up with him, even though it was only for 17 years. He knew how to light up a room. And he couldn't be controlled on interviews. I hope he heard laughter when he arrived at the Pearly Gates of Heaven like he wanted.

I'm not really good with poems so I'm sorry it's not professional grade. But I wanted to do something...it took me longer than I wanted it to. I just...couldn't do it at first. I would start crying at the first key stroke. But I give this remembrance poem now. Better late than never.

We'll miss you, Robin...

Remember Captain Robin

I usually don't cry at the death of a celebrity(?), but I cried when I heard the news about Robin...shiz, I'm crying again! Damn, your poem is an awesome tear-jerker! Thanks for writing this up, mate! :')
