I was thinking the other day of past musicians gone
and if they were still around now, would they still be in song?
So many have gone before their time, heavens call
John Lennon was one who could bind us all

From his early days in the Beatles he inspired
to his happy days in New York where he was mired
He sang of peace and love, screaming this out
until he was blue in the face did he shout

Then there were his more personal pieces he sang to us
Woman being one that never fails to break hearts as his must
For this was about the love of his life Yoko Ono
who changed everything for him, made him happy, made him glow

He fought for freedom in his own way through his words
although sometimes I wonder if people actually heard
Merry Christmas (war is over) was a message of peace
but wars carry on regardless, they never cease

He is remembered though for one iconic song among many
that gets played and re-released, breaking the top twenty
For Imagine is a song that still has a power for today
one we hope will one day come true we hope and pray
