Just Enjoy Awhile  

Listening to songs
can take away the strife.
For in the lyrics there are hidden
the meanings of your life.

What words bring your eyes to tears,
which ones touch your heart?
Causing you to remember your love
so far back at the start.

Back when it was so pure,
back when it was true.
Back when it was all you had
and it gave life to you.

What words say you are not alone
in this world of sometimes grief?
Bringing pain as they are shared
but also sweet relief.

These tie us together up to death
and from our birth.
They remind us we are not alone
in our lives upon this Earth.

What words reach into your soul
and bring a touch of peace?
Giving time when you are healed
and all your troubles cease.

Some say these are the best ones
and that they come from up above.
Telling you that in this crazy world
we all still have God's love.

All these words are found in songs
that bring a tear or smile.
So take the time to sing along
and just enjoy awhile!

Michael "Listen And Enjoy!" Gallatin

Author Notes

Songs have an extremely close tie to poetry. We all have songs, genres, singers we enjoy. Some of mine are Michael Johnathon, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, Jonnie Mitchell, Carole King and Janis Joplin to name a few. Songs evoke emotion just as poems do. So this is my poem to celebrate songs.

I like some of those people too!!! I think I'm related to James Taylor because my real name is Amanda Taylor...but I would rather be called Joan...because you know I'm dead and zombies moan...Joan Moan... you should look at more of my writing!! I can send you one through my next review if you like...I dont know if its gonna work but ya know...and now about your poem... Yes music is the best healer because it was probably the first thing you hear and it will heal you!!
