The Song (poem)


It was a song an echo from his past

Which caused his dreams to pause and then repent

In all the joys and happiness well spent

A time forever after meant to last


And though he danced his partners have all gone

Was no one left who understood his smile

He wonders has it been so long a while

And still this song politely lingers on


How could they know the melody he hears

The places they have seen and they have chanced

Igniting dreams in others with their dance

To song which now ignites confusing tears


He sighs as song continues to portend

He knows his song is coming to the end

Music only
