Solitary and healing song

Solitary and healing song …

Solitary as it seems there remain songs that caressed
my very soul back to heal and exist again
within my own breast

These trials in any life to ruin a decent man’s heart
yet they adorn with insanity
let then your emotions rest

But a song…….one song touching caressing
and yes, even bending softly
could forever alter

The melody calms new or old reaching deep within
soothing but never erasing
let these moments forgiveness not faulter

Lay your ear softly against this living shoulder
a melody lay soothing cheek against cheek
like warm soft rains of summer eve

Let your healing begin until the last ring of well
tuned strings turn to blessed silence
until the soul wants desperately to believe

If a life isn’t for happiness then why not now
why not throw away the reigns let lose the ties
I adorn you this song

Let it reach deep within your body delivered
by loving hands to heal
and let it repeat itself all the day long

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would we say "Now about me!"... I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ...

    So beautifully written. Loved the ending lines:
    “Lay your ear softly against this living shoulder
    a melody lay soothing cheek against cheek
    like warm soft rains of summer eve”

    “Let it reach deep within your body delivered
    by loving hands to heal
    and let it repeat itself all the day long”

    Best wishes and Blessings!
