the last days of left eye


Dear Lisa,
Hey girl... I just want to say that I miss you. Your craziness. Your creativity. Your compassion. Your spirit. TLC was a big part of my teenage life. Yet, you know that. It wasn't until I was older that I understood the person you are, and the person you was trying to be. A Supernova... a light so powerful and so bright, that when it explodes, its energy is released into a million pieces. Then those pieces are formed to create a new light. Spiritually, you was like my ray of light.


It seemed like yesterday, you and the rest of the girls were a team. The best female group of all time. You stood for independence, freedom, & standing up for oneself. You was conscious about the issues of the world, on top of making all your fans dance, cry, and feel good about ourselves. I miss TLC, it just isn't the same anymore since you been gone.


To you, we weren't just fans. We were like an extended family. Even when the fans got together to see you in concert, or go to a TLC event in your honor, we came together strong. Fellow TLC fans were like family to me as well. We had so much fun together. We would do anything, say anything, sing to the top of our lungs, and just enjoy the experience that you and the girls created.


The realization that your gone still doesn't seem real. You was so vibrant, so in your face, your silence saddens everyone that loved you. All I can do is put in your cds, and turn up the volume when your rap comes on, and jam like I never jammed before. The only I can do is to spread the knowledge you wanted everyone in the world to know. To Love yourself, love one another, be at peace with your spirit, and express yourself until your heart hurts!
I love you, and I miss you.

Well said Shawn. You referred to Lisa as a supernova. Have you heard her solo cd, Supernova?
