alas my dearest marilyn

twas fifty years today
your body was discovered
in the bed where you did lay
 
alas my dearest marilyn
a goddess fully fleshed
that prompted vivid fantasies
when in the mind enmeshed
 
alas my dearest marilyn
perhaps the angels knew
the road maps from the lines of time
should not diminish you
 
alas my dearest marilyn
you were the sweetest soul
bereft inside a hurricane
that you could not control
 
alas my dearest marilyn
i pray that you found peace
and prospered in a finer realm
when you found your release
 
alas my dearest marilyn
you truly are a star
and you'll be ours forever
for its timeless that you are
