LIFE IN LYRICS

Isn’t it romantic
to have life in lyrics
– everything is larger than it should be
Tears continue flowing while the song is sung
Forever and ever like looping time
Heartbreak never mends
in the musical pedestal
Sing it! sing it!
Again and again
Keep the pain as raw as when it began
Oh! but, love –
Love sits immortal
humming its plaintive tune
of life in lyrics
playing in lonely afternoons.
Keep a soul company
Keep the memories new
Sing once more what the passing world has taken.
Sing! even as new words and songs are being written.
