An "Angel" and A "Bad Boy"

An angel and a bad boy leave the world today.
The angel, at 62, succumbs to cancer.
The bad boy, at 50, stops breathing.

The angel therefore can no longer chase villains.
As a wife, no longer battered.
As a mother, no longer suffering.

The bad boy therefore can no longer do the moonwalk,
Scare you with another "Thriller,"
Or get everyone to sing "We Are the World" again.

Yes, the angel and the bad boy are no longer here
But they'll surely stay forever
Where there is fortitude and bravery,
Where there is creativity and energy,
Where there is a lot of love and compassion...
There's an angel and a bad boy.
