The Man Behind the Glass

By RaheemaFKM

Frozen in time behind crystal glass, is he who made our hearts run fast
With every movement, every beat, he swept us up on dizzy feet
A child at heart, immortalized, by one great dream he realized
A King of stars, a man of love, he poured his heart out from above
The world, he filled with magic songs, which quickened even dead men’s bones
The world, united by his voice, did laugh and dance and long rejoice
Frozen in time behind crystal glass, this man we knew would ever last
Would ever live, would never rest, would give to all his very best
A priceless jewel, most rare, divine, this man preserved for all of time
Within the mirror, behind the glass, this man we know shall ever last
