Loving an angel

Michael was a multi-billionaire. He could buy anything he wanted. But what he valued most of all were the things money can’t buy, the purity and innocence that he found in nature, in children and in the hearts of his loving fans. He cherished every little thing we gave him, every expression of our love.


I felt blessed to have all of the opportunities I had to be with Michael, and did my very best to give all that I could on my own behalf and on behalf of all those who love him as much as I do but would never get the chance to tell him so. I would sit for hours under a tree seeking new ways to express to him how much he means to the world, how loved and cherished he is.


Here is a poem I wrote for Michael and gave to him in Los Angeles in October 2008. He told me a few days later that he loved it so much that he read it to his children.


Loving an angel


I remember being thirteen

Seeing an angel on the screen

His face was beauty, his eyes were love

I knew he came from up above


I longed with all my heart to meet

This giver of love, so pure and sweet

They called him Michael, a star and king

He became my world, my everything


I wished and wished and my wish came true

The universe carried my soul to you

And though I see you a thousand times

I’ll never lose what’s yours and mine


For deep inside, I’m still thirteen

Peering out at this wondrous dream

I can’t believe it, I’m so amazed

My life’s a wonder, I’m in a daze


Look and see the love that’s mine

This love reflects the light you shine

For in the darkness you were there

You gave me hope, you made me care


In your presence there is no fear

And earthly ties all disappear

My inner child sprouts wings and flies

My spirit soars across the skies


I love you with a love so pure

That through the ages will endure

My soul is yours eternally

You are my gift, my destiny


You are my angel, my sweetest song

You are to whom my heart belongs

You are my childhood dream come true

Thank you Michael for the wonder of you

Michael Jackson, a true angel
