For Eva.

This poem is dedicated to Eva Cassidy. The wonderful Singer who won millions of hearts with her beautiful voice. She made her last public appearance on September,1996. The Last Song she sang that day was the famous "What a wonderful world" by louis Armstrong. She died of Cancer two months after the show, on 2nd November,1996.This poem is also dedicated to all those wonderful people who are fighting with cancer today. Our prayers are with you.

I see trees that are green, red roses too
I watch them bloom for me and you

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky

Are also on the faces of the people passing by
I see friends shaking hands, saying, "how do you do?"
But they're really saying, "I love you"

She stood on the stage
the spotlight was on her..
a long dark tunnel
and the faint light wasnt far.

She stood behind the microphone,
and held her guitar tight.
She saw them all smiling at her..
it was her last night.

She had struggled with the dark
she was lean and weak now,
the doctor said, she shouldnt sing,
but she got the strength somehow.

she filled the evening with her lovely voice,
with "songbird" and "way beyond the blue".
She showered bliss from heaven that day...
each moment was as fresh as dew.

And then she closed her final show,
with a smile and tear in her eye.
Not because she wont be there for long...
but she had to "say goodbye"....
