Love Song

I wrote you a love song

Offered it for free

Words to last a lifetime

Lilting melody

 

I sang you a love song

Set my spirit free

Hearts in thumping rhythm

Luscious harmony

 

We became a love song

Lyrics wild and free

Power chords fever pace

Life in key of E

 

We rewrote the love song

Set each other free

Drifting now band to band

Mournful homily

 

I still sing our love song

Estinto though we be

Strings are getting rusty

Vocals out of key

 

I wrote you this new song

Drop D or C or G

Meter weak but getting strong

Illusive melody

I define myself as: a free spirit, a writer, a philosophical anarchist, a poet; a lover of nature, a lover of art, a protector of animals, as well as a devoted friend and partner

    I like the way you write Phil, it’s very earthy and honest. You can tell it comes right out of your life and not from spectating others.
