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 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.
