Oh Captain, My Captain, throughout my years on Earth;
You have brightened and enriched my life, filling it with mirth!
My favorites of your performances, were as Spartacus and the Vikings King;
Their power overwhelming, I thought, “an Oscar should they bring”!
Throughout my years you’ve been an influence, a magnitude of masculinity;
As a lad, I often uttered, “Like Kirk Douglas I want to be”!
Of course, your eldest son Michael, continues with your legacy;
A Thespian loved by so many, his movies a “must see”!
But yesterday, your assignment was over, now you trek to galaxies far;
To start your role as an Angel, your stage, the distant stars!
But your legend will live forever, you left your mark on Humanity;
Our Hero, Mr. Kirk Douglas, your fame burns eternally!
Our Hero has left
But he lives on forever
In our loving hearts
I was so sorry to hear about your Father's passing.
Throughout my life, he has been one of my heros.
He may be gone, but his legend will live forever.
