I’m in mourning. Feeling lost, alone, and confused. Can’t find the words to put to a blog about your impact on culture, art, music, fashion, and life. I don’t know what to say. I hurt. I know that I’m so grateful that you honored your gifts and for your love of music and of humanity.

I love you. I love you. I love you. You are freedom. You are the first breath a baby takes. You are light.

So many well-written word will breathe life and give love to your existence. I’m with them. Right now, I miss you. My eyes are red with the pain of loss. God wanted you home and so be it, but I hurt.

I believe God sends angels. You’ve been my angel since I was nine telling me to be free. BE free. Be free and love one another. Now you’re with the angels and I grieve. I love you. You wrote the words to express what I feel now.

“It’s Gonna Be Lonely” – Prince

We’ve been together for quite some time
I’d think by now you’d know
It would take forever to get you off my mind
If ever you decide to go
I guess I got a little insecurity when it’s concerning you
I guess I’m just afraid that if you ever leave
I’d be in a messed-up state of blue
And I’d be so lonely
Without you loving me
I know it’s gonna be lonely
Without you giving me everylittlesinglething that I need, lonely
Whatever’s in your kiss, it really turns me on
’til I go right out of my mind
And who could ever resist your accent from gay Paree
It gets me every time
I betcha thatcha never knew that in my dreams you are the star
The only bummer is that you always want to leave
Who do you think you are
Don’t you know it’s gonna be lonely
Without you loving me
I know it’s gonna be lonely
Without you giving me everylittlesinglething that I need, lonely
It’s gonna be lonely
