our music

sing me songs of
light through the pines,
couples holding hands,
big billowing clouds

play my soul
like an instrument of love,
push me down a trill
jump on my staccato

hum sweet melodies
into my ear and fill the
quiet ebbs with flows
of kisses from
your sweet mouth

wind up my music box heart,
lay your head on my chest
and listen as it strums out
songs of our love

Sad Songs

I sing the sad songs
Under my breath
Only a slight whisper
Detectable by
Those drawn near

Holding back on the words
I struggle to
Squelch the tears,
They come
None the less

Attempting to release the pain
I tilt my head back
Pushing my sobs to the sky
Tears trickle into my ears

Shaking my head to clear them
I catch a glimpse of you
In the doorway

The only way I know
Of making me smile
During sad songs

The Ultimate Setlist

Yes, there is love
But first, there is music
It spans all
It brings us up
It brings us down
But most of all
It brought us together
It binds us still today

The melody grabs you
The words pull you in
The combination
Wraps itself around your heart
With the promise
Of never letting go

We search for
The ultimate setlist
Something that speaks
To our soul
Brings memories
Brings tears
Brings joy
Perfection in every track

The soundtracks of
Our lives
Each song building
On the last
Until it is locked into
Your very being

Find it
Hear it
Hold it
May it never go away
