Listening to every heart
You wafted in on transistor radio
close to my ear, I heard you over the whine
whispering Cherry, Cherry in my ear
and later singing Red, Red Wine.
All of my friends were excited when
you sang Sweet Caroline on the radio
because if one didnt catch it all
it sounded like my name, you know.
And when you came out with Holly Holy
I thought it was for me solely.
Then I wanted to travel along
when Brother Love broke out in song.
Cracklin Rosie was a mystery to me
but I liked the lyrics anyway.
And when the early 70s came on by
I Am I Said put a beam in my eye.
I stumbled through life then, my story is true
and then you came out with Song Sung Blue,
and I thought I could make it through.
Because every garden has one.
But soon my life reverberated
with You Dont Bring Me Flowers
and it was as if it illustrated
all of my life that had gone sour.
Love on the Rocks held me for awhile
Hello Again brought back my smile.
Then I met a wonderful man who made a Beautiful Noise
and tho not a Kentucky Woman, I gained some poise.
Surviving the Life swept me along
and I Thank the Lord for the Night Time
for my man can Walk on Water
and Ill keep Longfellow Serenade as mine.
To Neil Diamond, and all of the songs he shared with the World.
Words will always express our feelings true. ~~~ KRJ
Look, then, into thine heart, and write ~~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
