In Memory of Iwamatsu Mako

(Voice of Uncle Iroh)

What happens when an actor dies?

his word no longer flies

from lip to ear

Will no one hear

the words they say

the parts they play

To fade from memory

to forget the word

to forget the way

the words used to play

In your heart

within your head

awaken the soul that's dead

When an actor dies,

Will his work fade away?

the words un-done

the parts un-wound

the thoughts unsaid

when the actor's dead?

When his word no longer flies

from lip to ear,

Will no one hear

the words they said

the parts they read

When the actors dead?


I was so sad when I heard Iroh's voice died...he really brought him to life. This is my little tribute to him, and even though poetry isnt my thing, i thought this turned out pretty good.

please, R & R, flames are welcome, they are needed to boil the water for tea
