Have All The Songs Been Written

My pen is drawn to words not mine In search of thoughts that say How much your love has meant to me In oh, so many ways. To write a song for you alone Is what I try to do. But words unsaid are hard to find To say how I love you. Each now and then, I seem to find A special word or two, But closer looks in old songbooks Find words meant just for you. The words that say what your love means Are there for all to see. Oh (Girl), I wish with all my heart Those words had come from me. Have all the songs been written? Have all the words been said? Must I depend on someone else? Or can I look ahead? To words unsung to say the things My words cannot fulfill? If the song has not been written Then Girl, I know I will.

    I'm sure there is many a song in your head. I have co-written 13 love songs; 11 of my own and 40 gospel songs. One day I will have the time to write the scores. Treasure your gift - God is good! God bless, Maureen

    Dear friend, thanks for your visit. I treasure most the time spent glorifying God. I believe we sometimes spend too much time seeking things that have no eternal value. I spent 17 years in Prison ministry. How satisfying it is to know God uses old wordsmiths like me to His glory.... Love Ya..... Jake

    One of my favorites form you Jake! I've had similar thoughts before... about songs often repeating themselves... there's so many it's hard to be original! I believe the songs are in us from the beginning. Perhaps someone else wrote it up first, but I like to hope there's always something more to be said... really dig this one!

    Jake - thanks for visiting my words and your kind comments. I have now read your 10 most recent poems - all written within 3 days - and must ask...are you a musician? Each one reads like a song, you are very lyrical. I will read more for sure. My family was musical and I feel that it contributed to my love of poetry. Your love poems are beautiful and, no, all the songs have not been written - you are writing them!

    Thanks for the kind comments on my postings. Yes I am a musician--- amatuer, of course. I write lyrics for the most part. No, I didn't write these in three days... Just posted in 3 days. Look further and you will find some that are more to my liking than the last 10... My favorite... I'd have to say...."Till You -- Lyrics" though there are many more that I enjoyed writing. I'll be visiting your page often... I find comfort in your postings.... Jake
