I Knew A Song

I knew a song once,

a long time ago.

Such a lovely song -
about love, and hope, and trust.

The words echoed through my mind,

and the music,

the music captured my heart
and set me dancing with joy.

It was such a beautiful song -
about love, and hope, and trust.

Yes, I knew a song once,

but time has passed
and I no longer remember the words …

or the music.

    When a special song we have heard or sung really touches
    our heart and mind we're reminded time to time about it. If as
    times passes we can no longer remember it then even in the
    subconscious we may have filed it back to a place that
    only a special scene or circumstance will bring it before us
    again. A beautiful write.

    Very touching. And reading it brought a compassioate sigh. You will sing again. Enjoyed very much.

    Val, This is a change from what I've mostly read of yours, but still, filled with feelings that I seem to always share
    and can relate to. You are such a wonderful poetess, that it is beautiful any chosen style, and a very much loved person to top it off! ! ! {{{hugs}}} always, and thanks for sharing your talent and poems.....and you!

    At least our lives are filled with many songs. Good write.

    A song maybe we want to forget yet sadly without this song you would not have grown.Pretty special Val. Music takes so much pain away from so many. Thank You X

    wow! .. Valerie, you just reminded me of a picture of mine I found a month ago, it was taken two decades ago..
    in the picture I am with a friend or shall I say, with a person who used to be a friend... I had forgotten his name because I last saw him a couple of days after the photo was taken, I also knew a great guy.

    I love this poem.

    Siya_! !

    Yes, the memoirs remain always afresh. Every one gets swayed by some melody without knowing lyrics or meanings. beautiful

  • Om Chawla (5/25/2013 7:38:00 AM)

    As always very well written: and how truthful.
    The tide of time does dim the song of our vibrant youth and sometimes leaves us sad and melancholic as meaning of ' love and hope and trust' does not remain the same.
    But you sang, isn't that more important.

  • Chandra Thiagarajan (5/22/2013 11:08:00 AM)

    Though you no longer remember either the lyric or the music the remains of the thread of memory has evoked you write this wonderful write, Valerie!

    Wow: Ain't it da truth, ain't it da truth!
    Good one.
