Sing Me a Song

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Sing me a song,

tell me that you care,

bring back the joy -

of loving every day.

Bang those drums,

make my heart beat,

strum that guitar,

make my feet tap.

Bring some joy,

into this world of mine,

hold me and rock me -

like in the days of old.

Never forget,

that you and I,

were born into this world,

to walk it together.

You know that together,

we always make it better,

so bring on the songs, the music -

make me want to sing along.

Soon spring will be peeping,

over the windowsill,

the sun as warm as your love

and shining just as bright,

Chase away the gloom,

bring the broom and sweep away the blues,

compose a rock concerto -

the way only you can do.

Let’s hear the music,

fill the entire room,

from corner to corner -

as the shadows roll away.

So sing me a song,

as loud as you know how,

bring on the happy times -

for in our lives the best of times is now.

        The notes in the words sing...and that is poetry. Diamond is the perfect accompaniment.

        Got to the love the power of music. They way it can trigger just about any emotion it wants too. Great work on this poem. I really found it entertaining and satisfying.

        Thank you Shyron and blessings to you too.

        Thank you Whonu and blessing to you.

        Thank you FlourishAnyway. He does alright when he sings along with a song on the radio but then he isn't one to strum a guitar every day. I think it's kind of fun if your hubby tries to sing and it can delight you.

        Beautiful poem. I hope her lover can carry a tune. My husband can't so every time he sings I crack up.
