It is easy to say "I Want You," but must we forget
the love, the hurt, or the pain? And if "God Is Love"
then we will someday come to peace, lest we
forget. Even though you were a "Stubburn Kind of
Fellow," we will always love you Marvin. "If This
World Were Mine" you would have another chance, because "Aint Nothin' Like The Real Thing," lest
we forget. When you spoke of "Inner City Blues,"
it made me want to holler also, and I must say,
with due respect, that it is no longer a "Sexual
Healing" that we need, but a spiritual healing. If we
merely hear "It Through The Grapevine," then we
are depriving ourselves of the love of God and the
love of you and your music. If we really look back,
then there are sure to be "Sad Tomorrows" ahead.
In your music you have shown us, lest we forget
"What's Going On."
This poem was writen shortly after his death, and
I sent it to his mother, via Motown record Corp.
