There Is Music

musicheart

If nothing else

there is music

Melodies that capture memories

Carrying me back to another time

When I would rock my baby to sleep

as “You are My Sunshine” played softly in the background

 

If nothing else

there is music

Songs that transport me

Carrying me to another time

When I would dance with my children

as “September” shook the walls of our home

 

If nothing else

there is music

Songs that remind me of harder times

Carrying me back to another time

When I would lay in my bed, sobbing

as “Will She Ever Love Again” serenaded my sadness

 

If nothing else

there is music

Songs that buoyed my spirits

Carrying me forward to better days

As I transitioned from one phase of life to the next

while “Happy Girl” urged me forward

 

If there is nothing else

there is music

Songs that represent new life

Carrying me forward to better days

As I celebrate the man who makes me complete

while “No End In Sight” reminds me to count my blessings

 

If nothing else

there is music

Songs that keep me company each day

Carrying me forward to better days

As I sit back and reflect on almost fifty years

while my trusty playlist records every moment
