I Wish For A Song


I wish that I could write a song, (one that could be sung)

Dripping with words of emotion, all that could be wrung

But I know that words that trickle from my thoughts

But putting them to music is something never wrought

Even my rhymes sometimes get away from me

Attempting lyrics, I can only imagine what I’d see

So while I stick to lines that end in rhythmic time

I’ll stray away from choruses and adding to them a chime.

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
