19-year-old Prince Jackson (aka Michael Jackson Jr.) took to Instagram to share a poem titled "The Myth, The Legend, The Man" that he wrote about his dad, and it seriously brought tears to our eyes. "Happy birthday to the Man who was more than a legend," he captioned the 'gram. "I love you."
His 18-year-old sister Paris Jackson later regrammed the picture of the sonnet, writing: "love this.. proud of you big brother. and happy birthday to the man that means more to us than anything and anyone ever could."
But the late superstar's children weren't the only one to remember him today. Madonna also posted a collage of old photos to pay tribute to her friend, which she captioned: "Happy Birthday to this wonderful and glorious creature!! The King! Gone too soon!"
Michael Jackson may be gone, but his legacy certainly lives on.
