My Guitar

Written by: Terry O'Leary

With burdens bearing heavy down a road that’s hard and long My body’s bent and weary so I’m reaching for a song; My sorrows flicker – fading ..., faint ... - beneath the morning star, While worried fingers seethe across the strings of my guitar. Though seagulls fly forever, streaking, striving for the strand, My troubles ebb, evaporate, with my guitar in hand; Their turbulency’s writhing neath the notes within the air - And hunted by the haunting beat, they’re vanquished everywhere. With melodies erupting, bursting, splashing night with dawn, The drifting dancing demons die, as time goes swirling on; Guitars are roaming randomly across the rusty skies, While cares have vanished, draped in dust of distant lullabies.
