The Song

Nostalgia

The Song

I heard a song today I’d never heard before

A symphony that ‘peared to me

Like new grass on the plain

I heard a song just yesterday; of this I’m raptly sure

The chords serene so quickly flee

As if in haste, disdain

I heard a song the other day that I can bear no more

Its words so sweet I can’t complete

They’ve washed away like rain

I’d heard a song not long ago of patient love’s reward

And I can see what was will be

When met with its refrain

I hear a song at once anew; I’d yearned listening for

The aching cease gives way to peace

True notes in e’ery strain

I heard a song I sang today, of futures to explore

Of harmony my heart believes’ll

Return with you again

Author and artist, I'm finding my spirit again late in life. Old passions for poetry borne of love, loss, hope and pain, things with which everyone is familiar.
