Another day has gone
I'm still all alone
How could this be
You're not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

But you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
But you are not alone

'Lone, 'lone
Why, 'lone

Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come
And hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
Then forever can begin

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
For you are not alone

Whisper three words and I'll come runnin'
And girl you know that I'll be there
I'll be there

You are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay
For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

For you are not alone...

    Oh Michael, words can't describe you. You were a great entertainer, father, and person. You were an amazing man and the world is going to be a VERY different place without you. I loved you and all your songs. You shouldn't have died like that, you didn't deserve it. You had the world at your feet. You will always be in our hearts and our music players. You are going to meet many great people in Heaven. I guess you were wrong, Heaven CAN'T wait. The day you died, all your fans cried and cried and cried (I was one of them.) You are greatly missed and will be for years to come. Like Elvis, your songs will be sung forever. You were and still are very loved. We all miss you. You Are Not Alone Michael, just like in your song. You deffinitly were Gone Too Soon. You will be with us forever. If you had lived to finish your This Is It concert, I'm sure you would have been very proud of yourself for touching so many hearts. I know your children are proud of you, Paris esspecially. They miss you Michael, and they loved you with all their hearts, you could tell just by the way they looked at you and the way Paris talked about you. I miss you Michael and you are in my heart, ipod, every thought, and in my prayers. I love you and I will always miss you. R.I.P

    There are times when a lady falls in love with her "best friend" but she never tells him because she doesn't want to ruin their "friendship" relationship...then he is sent off to war (Iraq, Afganistan, etc.) and she regrets never telling him how she truly felt before he is deployed. These words tell her story. They are now far apart, but their steadfast friendship will always be strong and she sings this song to him every night in her dreams vowing to let him know her feelings and praying God will return him safe and sound.

    I miss you so much!!!
    Thank you, Michael Joseph Jackson!!
    Your music will live on...mwah mwah mwah!

    As John Denver said,
    "Music does bring people together.
    It allows us to experience the same emotions.
    People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit.
    No matter what language we speak,
    what color we are, the form of our politics
    or the expression of our love and our faith,
    music proves: WE ARE THE SAME." Ü Ü
