Daily missive for Friday the 22nd of May.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 22nd of May.

If I could sing
Or play the piano.
Write songs
And put words together,
In a simple permutation,
With a soulful beat,
A syncopated rhythm,
That makes you
Want to tap your feet,
Soft at the centre,
And bitter sweet,
With a gentle twist
That touches the heart,
A subtle verse,
An internal rhyme,
With a poignant hook,
That captivates
When it returns
At just the right time.
And brings a lump
To the throat
A tear to the eye,
Makes a whole room cry.
How would it sound?

What would I say
If I could write
A book or play
And what would
It mean to know
Everything I said
All that I wrote,
The question,
And the answer,
Was always,
Honest and true
To the love
And respect
I hold for you.
So hear my song
Read my words
They are all
I have to give
And with you
To sing for
Even simple
Words like these
Can live
