With all the tributes and posts about Robin Williams and what his loss means to so many, I waited a few days to post and let the dust clear.
What a character Robin Williams was
He covered so many various personalities
Whether a rebel dj named Adrian Cronauer
All the way to drive by fruiting Doubtfire.
To hear his laughter as a big blue Genie
Or the wild side he played in Jumanji
In Robots he entertained as jovial Fender
And in Hook we found irresistible Peter.
Of course we started to imitate Nanu Nanu
As we watched him orate his earthly view
We couldn’t forget him in Mork and Mindy
But we could as his role playing Popeye.
Whether he was thrilling us with stand-up
Or in Dead Poet’s toasting by raising a cup
He managed to lead us to laughter and tears
He could bring an audience to standing cheers.
As with most any celebrity taken way too quick
We’ll now watch favorite movies we might pick
Time will tell how long his memories will last
I’m hoping he’ll be remembered a long time past.
The loss of a great personality and artist, he will be missed.
