Getting lost in music

Sometimes I get lost in life
So few, then are my thoughts
I forget about regulation
And all those if’s, and aught’s
And I get lost in music
Making up my little songs
I often think that music
Is the place where I belong

When I’m with my music
I have no cares at all
The whole of life is beautiful
And everything seems cool
No worries sneak into my mind
I do not give a damn
Forgetting shadows from the past
And stuff from Vietnam
I stand there at that keyboard
And put those notes on down
As I try to make a symphony
A lovely wall of sound
And when I sing, I sing to God
As I celebrate my love
Oh yes, that’s when I reach on out
To that power up above

Nothing seems to matter, then
Music’s all there is
There are no pangs of heartache
I feel such holy bliss
Doing what I do the best
Slowly moving in
As angels up in heaven say
“Let the symphony begin”.

Well written Peter. There is nothing better to listen too than good music, I love all kinds, 60s 70s, classical, rock, reggae, even throw in a bit of opera ( but not too much) Happy new year . Tom.

Hi Tom, I used to write so many songs, and that was the most beautiful time of my life. That period is gone now, but I do love to listen to gentle music. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter
