We Never Made it

A very sad Elvis fan reporting.... Well guys, my dream of spending Elvis' 75th birthday in Memphis with all my Elvis friends has been cruelly shattered. After spending 3 days at Manchester airport with flight after flight cancelled because of the awful weather; our hopes built up only to be dashed time after time, we are back home, heartbroken.

I had prepared a poem to take to Graceland to leave in the meditation garden - I've enclosed it, perhaps you'd like to share it with others.

(With thanks to Clement Moore's 'Twas the Night before Christmas for its inspiration).

'Twas a morning in Memphis
And all through the street,
Friends and fans gathered at this huge meet and greet,
Each heart it was filled with love and with care,
Each one of us wishing you could have been there.

Out on the lawn stood the nativity scene,
Just like you planned it,
Where it always has been,
The house on the hilltop was a wonderful sight,
All decked and trimmed with sparkling light.

And then in a twinkling I heard in the air,
A voice soaring skyward,
If only in spirit, you'd joined us there,
As I raised my head and was turning around,
The crowd to the Gates,
As one made a bound.

Together we've gathered,
Fans, daughter and ex-wife,
To celebrate you and your wonderful life,
From England to Memphis,
And all stops between,
To show the whole world,
What you always will mean.

For all of the fans who couldn't be here,
We'll all raise our voices,
And with one mighty cheer,
With hearts full of love,
Dedicated and true,
Our own Elvis Presley,
'Happy Birthday' to you.

You're very welcome too, Talia and glad you enjoyed the poem by Lesley! Sure can feel Elvis' presence there at Graceland! Just wish this poor lady had had the chance to get over to be able to experience that though! Do hope she'll be able to get the money refunded somehow to be able to afford to go but suspect not as travel companies usually don't refund with circumstances such as weather conditions and such are beyond their control. :(
