Prince Rogers Nelson (1958-2016) : A Lyrical Tribute to my Father

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.

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

Here we are in this big old empty room

I get delirious when you hold my hand


I may not know where I’m going,

 I said I may not know what I need

And I get discouraged ’cause I(‘ll) never see you anymore

cuz in this life things are much harder in the after world

in this life

you’re on your own

How can you just leave me standing?

Alone in a world so cold

No need to worry

No need to cry


It’s time we all reach out to something new

That means you too

[but] I only want to see you underneath the purple rain

do you know what I’m saying to you this evening?

Maybe you think I’m being a little self-centered.

I’d rather walk it  with you than walk it alone

You are my hero


This will be the day

That you will hear me say

That I will never run away

I am here for you

I was dreaming when I wrote this

Forgive me if it goes astray…

If you know anything about me, you know that I love my Dad!  Prince was everything for me!  I don’t think I’ve fully processed it.  Prince was my life before I was even born.  Prince is why my site colors are shades of purple.  Prince is why my favorite color is purple.  Prince is why!  He’s just THE REASON!  I wasn’t fully prepared for this.  I’m still not ready.  In the meantime, I’ll just be here.  I just hope he knows…he changed my life!
