It’s endearing to trace the pages of old books
That have been read a thousand times…
you feel the love of people,
who have adored the words before you
and left traces of them in weathered pages you now hold,
it’s like music to a writer’s mind.
There is a certain charm
in the quiet hum
of a forgotten song.
And then your mind drifted to the moment,
you heard the tune for the very first time,
at the mall,
by the payphone,
they don’t make anymore…
so you held on a little harder to the memory
and let your heart soar to music once more.

I see you
from the corner of my eyes
trying to hide
on the other side
of the song…
that took so long
like a life’s prayer
to the infinite skies
I see you
from the corner of my eyes.
Lost in the music
that left a note in your heart
for you to reminisce forever
You dance to the unsung songs of summer
faded in the distant memories of childhood
where you danced under sunshine
through wildflowers & butterflies
swaying to the wind
In between the quiet spaces of my mind
my soul song plays loudly
drumming to the sound of my beating heart
The smell of earth after rain
Flows through your veins
making your soul come alive, again.
Happy Earth Day Everyone!
You come to my life…
like the long lost melody of my soul,
like my heart’s forgotten scroll,
like the cool breeze after summer rain,
the one who cradles my pain,
like the traveller walking on sunshine,
who brightens my days,
and lightens my nights,
You come to my life.
