Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.
I still like to do the old songs. I know some people don't.
-- Bonnie Tyler
Where is the music melodious and cool
the one long before heavy metal and rap
now played by every angry hysterical fool
that pushed away finesse for this noisy crap.
Gone are days of romantic expression
with roses and lips on an album's cover
when lyrics displayed a gentle confession
so adding to the words of each hopeful lover.
Under dimmed light we would slowly dance
in embrace, as if blending with each other
hearts so resonating in musical romance
nothing in this world that would bother.
Music that made you seek a mate
giving your dreams a new dimension
as you rehearsed words for that first date
those mellow sounds easing down the tension.
Music that helped memories to be made
for years to come crowned with silver hair
in so many romantic hearts it forever stayed
deaf to this crappy noise which can't compare.
Generations are coming with something new
each but expressing their own musical mood
but it's not meant for me, and maybe for you
those times are gone when music was good.
