Treasure Island

A Song


Through a song I got to know of a friend
Whose friendship is faithful and unconditional.
Through a song I met the greatest love of my life
Through a song I knew how much he loves me
Through a song I understood how much he loves me
Through a song I understood how great it is to be loved by him
Through a song I created ideas
Through a song I built realities from dreams
A song encouraged me when I was discouraged,
Reminded me of a love so great a love unending

A song made me keep holding on when nothing else could help
A love song lifted me
A song reminded me I have a friend who knows my name
A song taught me that if I read and pray I would grow
The same song also taught me what I ought to read
Yet another song helped me recover when I was sick
The words rang deep in my ears and there I cultivated faith
A song introduced me to the greatest song writer of all time

The same song also told me of his son who was the wisest man ever to live
A song talked of my capabilities and how to activate it
A song explained the complexity of love
The same song also taught me who to love
A song taught me who how and when to worship
A song covers where plain words are not enough
And yet you ask why I listen to music?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
