A Soothing Song (poem)

Updated on June 21, 2013

A soothing song was calling in the eve

It called to him soft moments of the past

A welcome dream was promise which it cast

Upon his heart surrender did it weave


It beckoned him from shadows there amassed

In streets his charm and passion would conceive

Was there he swore an oath to never leave

Was there with her his faithful tears had passed


But in this while his soul had gone astray

Forgive me were his cries to days gone by

As helplessly to melody is drawn


A soothing song from ever and a day

Had walked her streets in search of a reply

And in the morning memories were gone

      Promises and words don't always last. You have spoken the truth as it sometimes plays out.

      A beautiful piece of work. A soothing love song can take us down the path of lost love and days gone by. Robin Thicke was a nice touch.

      You really have a way at tugging on those strings... I'll tell ya. You certainly write from your heart and that is where the real beauty speaks truth.

      Oh, I love this, so beautiful. A soothing song can be someone's loving voice one has not heard in a while. The heart can rest when one knows one is forgiven.

      Lovely video. His voice is so high, wow. Interesting, as it looks like part of the video may have been filmed on top of the old Million Dollar Hotel?

      Voted up ++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
