SADNESS INSIDE A CLOWN
You did not see paint on his face, he wore no funny hat,
No big red nose or big floppy feet, no funny costume, he was a man.
Not a clown as a clown might seem to be, his appearance just as you and me,
Always a smile on the outside for you and me, he made us all laugh, tears we didn’t see.
He was Robin, he had quite a life yes indeed, that which hurt his soul none of us could see.
I wish I could have known him, how fortunate his friends and family were to have loved,
He was once a boy, he ran and played just as all children do, his name would become legend,
Robin Williams the person, sadness inside a clown, why did this have to happen to you.
