THE SONG OF LIFE (c) By Polly Guerin

The violin sings tales of sadness
Of forgotten dreams and gladness

The piano strikes up a different tune
A giddy pizzicato fills the room

Together they play the lyric life
Young and foolish I was a wife

The melodic melody strings along
Recalls the first notes in my song

Life is a dualistic serenade
Memory lingers does not fade

But there is joy, pick up the beat
Resolute do not admit defeat

Uncover one more unique note
I sang with joy before I spoke

Listen a little closer to hear
Trust a little more my dear

Life is short, ends too soon
Sing and play a happy tune

Contribute to the song of life
Tender words and sound advice

Dream the dream you were born to live
Banish sad memories and lets forgive

From deep in your heart open up
Accepting unfolding joy is the rub

Listen more patiently, wait
For answers at any rate

Brings resolution on a new note
Play out the melody I wrote

Surrender to what is asked
Sing the Song of Life, be glad!!!
