Word by word my notes I play
I create a medley of thoughts
Lyrics of my heart in what I say
A song of my soul in phrases wrought.
Melody in verse and rhyme I see
Into a realm I love or an escapade
A haven it becomes where I would be
Midst turquoise waters or dappled shade.
Art it is and a reflection too
Of haunting beauty and reality
A sliver of a dream or an opera true
The rhythm of life and fantasy
And there I be with my muse
With laughter, tears, thoughts a few
And colours of the world - reds and blues
Through which I reach out to you.
And if ever I sing as poets have
I shall sing of life, dreams and hopes as such
Of the moon and stars, rain and storms
Through my voice some heart to touch.
