The Funny Man

No one really knew what he was going through
The world mourned when they heard about the news

In the movies and tv we see
Though you smiled, your eyes were never reached
Though you couldn’t save your own life
You’ve lit up others, and now here we cry

You made people laugh
But we never knew how hurt you were
We didn’t notice, but now you are gone
I know you won’t be forgotten cause you’re here in our hearts

And maybe someday when I have kids of my own
I’d name the girl Robin or William if it’s a boy
If they ask why I named them after you
I’d say “Cause that funny man was the best part of my childhood.”
