Always the Beat Goes On

Updated on October 28, 2016
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Moving on,

moving down the line.

Always in motion.

never ending.

Moving on.

ever forward,

over many bridges

and rough roads.

Day in and day out,

all the time -

perpetual motion.

Season after season,

on and on.

Following your heartbeats,

never anytime to retreat.

No regrets,

no sorrow,

always looking toward,

a brighter tomorrow.

No time to slow down,

moving on,

moving forward.

Back and forth,

hour after hour,

the clock keeps chiming.

Backwards and forwards,

time after time,

words expressed poetically,

make our emotions shine.

Moving on,

all the while.

Motion never ends,

moving on,

top to bottom

or upside down.

Never letting anyone,

rain on our parade.

Dancing to our own beat,

swaying to the music,

playing in our head.

Moving on,

slowly at first,

then much faster.

Beat after beat,

moving on,

every note,

every word of a memorable song.

Every beat,

the music never ends

and the beat goes on.

      Glad you enjoyed this Shauna. Shouldn't YouTube videos play everywhere or is there something I don't understand. I mean like I watch movies and old TV shows from the states on YouTube all the time so why would there be videos that don't play in the states? Never had a problem on my music blog.

      This is great, Rasma. Fast paced with a toe-tapping rhythm. Unfortunately, the video won't play in The States, but I was singing it in my head anyway.

      This poem is lively. I found myself humming the old song as I read.

      Reminds me of a dance between two people who have blocked out the world.

      I was humming the song before I saw the video. Whonu is right, the flow is lovely on this piece.

      Like a river ... like flow ... it is a kind of inner cadence; rhythm; tempo ... I guess the musical beat is one of the higher ones. Nice one Gypsy. The music is 'cool' too.
