Sing My Song – Written Tuesday 22nd September 2009 (Aged 34)

Sing My Song

it would be good
if someone came along
knew not just the chorus
but the whole song
sang a tune,
without going wrong
someone vivid,
and someone strong
i can pass on terms
such as, ‘hun’ and ‘babe’
just as long as they sing the words
before the fade
i am tired
of the same reprise
of over familiar melodies
and repeated lines
songs with no real meaning
and uncomfortable rhymes
i want a duet,
with actual feeling
not a sorry tale
of somebody eventually leaving
so find my song
and find the verse
sing the chorus
and truly believe the words
