"Gone Too Soon" as written by and Larry/kohan Grossman....
Like a comet
Blazing 'cross the evening sky
Gone too soon

Like a rainbow
Fading in the twinkling of an eye
Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly
And splendidly bright
Here one day
Gone one night

Like the loss of sunlight
On a cloudy afternoon
Gone too soon

Like a castle
Built upon a sandy beach
Gone too soon

Like a perfect flower
That is just beyond your reach
Gone too soon

Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
Here one day
Gone one night

Like a sunset
Dying with the rising of the moon
Gone too soon

Gone too soon

    General CommentThis song is dedicated to Ryan White, a young victim of AIDS who Michael befriended prior to his death.

    It is beautiful and if you watch the music video, tears will come to your eyes. Michael Jackson is such a beautiful, beautiful person inside... and what he did for Ryan White proves it .

    General CommentSuch a lovely yet sad song, so emotional sang by the late and great Michael Jackson. However I cannot hear this song now without thinking about what a sad loss to music he is.

    General CommentI heard somewhere that this song was supposed to be about his grandma, I heard that he wrote this after she died.

    R.I.P. Michael Jackson, when all you wanted to do is love...

    General Commenthe wrote this song for someone else but later this song 'Gone too Soon" is the perfect song for him when he died. Nobody have seen it coming for we were all shocked about it. The internet crashed that day, it was a first in Web History and he made history even after his death. He is the Greatest Pop Entertainer in the World and The most Popular Human Being to ever existed. He will always be remembered not only with his great songs but to the amazing person that he was. Michael Jackson, gone too soon.
