Jason Becker was a star,
shining brighter than the rest.
He played the hell out of the guitar;
Some might say he was the best.
He scored a gig of high acclaim,
His wildest dreams were coming true!
Then his fate took a tragic turn;
It struck out of the blue.
He was diagnosed with ALS
Doctors said he’d live a few more years,
Because it was still germinal,
But they had little hope for him:
"The disease is always terminal."
Jason’s dreams came crashing down,
He had just begun to live,
At just 19 years old,
he had so much more to give!
But Jason persevered
30 years went by, and he didn’t die,
But can longer speak or move.
And after all these years,
He still hasn’t lost his groove!
With his eyes he can communicate,
He makes music with them too;
Note by note, he writes his opus,
From which heaven’s angels flew.
With the power of technology,
his family, and his friends,
His ingenious musicology
Never really ends.
So perfectly divine,
The soaring melodies he creates.
His intelligent design,
So beautifully, he orchestrates.
His music speaks so loud and clear,
His message to the world is this:
“Love is the reason I’m alive,”
“And love is the key to happiness.”
