A Song of My Own (Poetic Reprise)

Note: I was inspired to write this poem after finally watching the movie Jason’s Lyric years ago. I will perform this poem regionally again this year…Enjoy.

A Song of My Own

One day,
I want to
Be with him
To see the sun
As it next leaves
Footprints across the sky…

One day,
I want to enjoy the bliss of his surprises
In between the time the sun sets
and rises…

One day,
I want to feel the warmth of a candlelight dinner
As we slow dance
By the coziest of fires…

Yes, today,
These are the
My heart
tells my mind it secretly desires…

One day,
I want to
By the water
And let
the right man
Finally catch me…

One day,
I want the
Swans we meet
To show us how
True love’s
first kiss
Can truly be…

I want
A song
of my own
I can call Destiny…
Lyrics that
Will take me
Beyond the melody~
Beyond Jason’s Lyric
No more tragedy
Lessons outside
With infinite
Yes, the one Song that never ends…
Always a present
Never a memory…
Where eternity

One day,
I want a man
To grab my feet
And pamper me
I want my own
Movie through
To become my
Symphonic reality…

I want a man
To find me
And call me
His own…
So my song
Can finally begin..
A Song of My Own
just for me to continue to
Hear..to sing…
To share–everywhere…

I want
The miracle
The crescendo
I want
All the
True love
I have given
To somehow
find its way
Back to me…

Until then
I continue
To play the notes..
On Keys of hope
Until my own song
Conquers all fears
And fights
To find its way
Back to me…

A Song of My Own
The revelation,
And the irony:
My heart wants
To hear a song
That already
Plays inside of me…

And when the right one hears it
He will instantly
The synergy-
And flow with me
And finally,
This soulful one
Will always
Hold the
Right note
To forever
my own
love song
Back to me…
