If Ever A Song

If ever a 
song were to be
written about
me, I would
want it to be in a 
minor key, where the
notes may not 
match, but,
somehow, they
go,
creating the 
harmonies that are 
my life.

If ever a 
song were to be
written about 
me,I would 
want it to be
smooth and
lyrical, but with a 
beat that 
pulses,
booms,
accelerates, and
slows,
weaving 
together all of the
strength, and the
beauty, and the
spirit, and the 
power that
I have, and that
I am.

If ever a 
song were to be 
written about
me, I would
want it to be a 
song about
joy, about 
sorrow, about
love, about the
tenacity it 
takes to be that 
song, and to 
make it a
good one.

If ever a 
song about
me were to be 
written, 
if ever a 
song about 
me were to be 
played, then
my 
voice
would be 
heard,
my 
story
would be
told, and 
those who
listened would
know that
I
have 
lived.
