The Crocodiles are Crying!!

Postby Fairie » Wed Sep 13, 2006 11:37 am

I know this is off topic and I think we were all stunned by Steve's death so I thought I would share this poem that I saw.

THE CROCODILES ARE CRYING>>
>>
>>
>> Endless visions fill my head - this man - as large as life
>>
>> And instantly my heart mourns for his angels and his wife
>>
>> Because the way I see Steve Irwin - just put everything aside
>>
>> It comes back to his family - it comes back to his pride
>>
>>
>>
>> His animals inclusive - Crikey - light the place with love!
>>
>> Shine his star with everything he fought to rise above
>>
>> The crazy-man of Khaki from the day he left the pouch
>>
>> Living out his dream and in that classic 'Stevo' crouch
>>
>>
>>
>> Exploding forth with character and redefining cheek
>>
>> It's one thing to be honoured as a champion unique
>>
>> It's one thing to have microphones and spotlight cameras shoved
>>
>> It's another to be taken in and genuinely loved
>>
>>
>>
>> But that was where he had it right - I guess he always knew
>>
>> From his fathers' modest reptile park and then Australia Zoo
>>
>> We cringed at times and shook our heads - but true to natures call
>>
>> There was something very Irwin in the make up of us all
>>
>>
>>
>> Yes the more I care to think of it - the more he had it right
>>
>> If you're going to make a difference - make it big and make it bright!
>>
>> Yes - he was a lunatic! Yes - he went head first!
>>
>> But he made the world feel happy with his energetic burst
>>
>>
>>
>> A world so large and loyal that it's hard to comprehend
>>
>> I doubt we truly count the warmth until life meets an end
>>
>> To count it now I say a prayer with words of inspiration
>>
>> May the spotlight shine forever on his dream for conservation
>>
>>
>>
>> .My daughter broke the news to me - my six year old in tears
>>
>> It was like she'd just turned old enough to show her honest fears
>>
>> I tried to make some sense of it but whilst her Dad was trying
>>
>> His little girl explained it best.she said "The crocodiles are crying"
>>
>>
>>
>> Their best mate's up in heaven now - the crocs up there are smiling!
>>
>> And as sure as flowers, poems and cards and memories are piling
>>
>> As sure as we'll continue with the trademarks of his spiel
>>
>> Of all the tributes worthy - he was rough.but he was real
>>
>>
>>
>> As sure as 'Crikey!' fills the sky
>>
>> I think we'll miss ya Steve.goodbye
>>
>>
-Fay-
