Fly high above the clouds.

Updated on October 5, 2013

Many years ago I played the piano and also managed to pass four exams. Today I have to admit that I haven't played the piano since I was about eleven years , but it has never left me.

Upstairs in the attic we have an electric keyboard which I bought for Erin when she was about ten years old. Every now and again that urge to bring it down and let these fingers do their work once again.

However I'm not promising to be very tuneful so just be thankful that you don't live next door to me ha ha!!!

Fly high and higher

Your heart will sing;

Those magical breezes

Much treasures to bring.




x


I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

x


Your bravery shines

Start that climb high;

Then in contentment

Watch the world go by.

x


I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

x


We should all aim high

Never ever for low.

With a happy sigh

Your heartbeat will flow.


x


I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

x


Forward we must travel

Upwards we will climb.

My footsteps I share

This is now your time.

x


I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

Fly high above the clouds.

A heart to sing

In sweet diminuendo

Each beat so tender.

Source

Times of elation

Cast aside trepidation

Sweet allegretto.

Source

A heart so whole

Each perforation so healed

In strong staccato.

Source

Today I fear not

I'm all I'm supposed to be

Love song to blossom.


Source

Each song cycle

In strong but tender sequence

Motivation flows.

Find your song

Each tone strongly transcending

So strong each pure chord.



Source

Find your own aria

Allow richness to lift your soul

That promised encore

Will find your being now whole.


Sweet harmonies sung

Each lament each love song

Swelling crescendos

To know we belong.

I hope you enjoyed today's hub and hope that you have also found your tune in life which allows you to fly high above the clouds.

Have a wonderful weekend one and all and lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

      Good Morning dear Eddy,

      You have such a knack for lifting people up with your lovely verse and songs, and this latest piece of yours is certainly no exception....a little Italiano blended with your Welsh, exhilarant freshness is wonderful. Pics are great - especially liked the rose made of sheet music.

      Thank you, and enjoy a marvellous weekend also.

      Eddy: This is beautiful. The poetry is stunning! And, I love all the images that go with it. I, too, played the piano for twelve years. But, alas, I do not have the natural ability. I can only play after I practice my brains out. I have always been envious of those who can just sit down and play. I am so happy for your that you are talented musically. I am not, but I try! LOL 'Sing your own aria' I think I love that line the most. Thank you for such a lovely and uplifting message. Your talents amaze me!

      Hi Eddy. In your first paragraph you mentioned Erin, you finished with a laugh. How wonderful Eddie. You are now so much happier, it really shines through, it must be down to the big Fella'

      Oh, how imaginative to use musical language expressed as emotions!

      Super idea, Eddy. And, it worked beautifully.

      You are the maestro of your own composition.

      And, it is amazingly beautiful.

      Great uplifting poem. Enjoyed reading it - I could feel my soul starting to sing, "I'm all I am supposed to be".

      Yes, and my brain too accepted that! I am God's unique creation, it said in response.

      Good morning Eddy the imagery and analogy in this offering from you is stunning. Aim high...for sure.

      I took piano lessons as a young girl and then brushed up again as an adult. There is something about how it allows me to go to another place that I so enjoy it.

      thanks for sharing this...Angels are on the way ps

      Ok Eddy, You should bring your keyboard down. The gift of playing music is the most beautiful thing. It goes with what you are feeling, thinking and writing. I bet you can create some beautiful music if you give it a try. Plus it keeps you from getting bored. This was a beautiful hub. Try playing music to some of your poetry. I'm going to do a hub on how you can make a video with your own music and words. Would that be interesting or no?

      Word55 I thank you so very much for this wonderful comment and I am taking your advice on board and will bring that keyboard down. Uncanny as it may be I have had it on my mind for a long time to bring down that keyboard and to refresh these musical fingers of long ago. I am so looking forward to reading your hub and thank you over and over.

      Have a wonderful day and lots of love from Wales.

      Eddy.
