“So Near, and Yet So Far”  – a poem

A legend with name up in lights 
Taking first class flights 
Sampling all delights 
Best of all to behold 
Telling stories, bold 
Rising, rising whilst others fold 
They stay at the top of their game 
For a while, things are the same 
Then a downward spiral takes hold 
Not quite so bold 
You slip out of the mold…. 
Years pass 
Public forgets 
Glamour remains 
Fame is the ship which has long since sailed 
A faded star; you travelled so far
