My Song

I play a song from in my heart It hums, I strum it every night The notes that float from in my soul Had once been much too sad to write Once I searched inside myself And found the song I proudly play My teardrops dried upon my face And all my sorrow washed away Happiness grew from my roots And my branches reached out to the sky The agony melted away As I watched the sadness pass me by I play this song from in my soul And let it mend my broken heart I feel my being start to fade As God calls my soul to part

    Hear the music as this piece comes to life. As I read and read, I begin to sense an old soul. Sometimes I also feel that I am living out in the wrong time. Your words move this soul, an attribute of true talent. Please read my "Isolation Keeps".

    Life is meant to enjoy. The hard times will make us stronger and the good times will be etched in our memory. In this one I love the beginning more than the ending. Vince
