Life's Songs
~*Marge Tindal*~

Life sings of us
the songs of mirth
The sweetest song
life-giving birth

Aria of our youth
sung in sweet surprise
Within our hearts
soon harmonized

Sings of us
through all our days
Joyous melodies
sung with praise

Melody of hearts
so tender
Pitch us now
in sweet surrender

Song of another
pierces our soul
Singing love
until we're old

Life sings of us
sweet lullabies
Kisses us softly
then says
goodbye

Within a heart
our song returning
Hummed now in
a heart of mourning

It matters much
the song life sings
Caught in the joy
of remembering

Life sings of us
sweet lullabies
Kisses us softly
then says
goodbye

Very moving. Songs can be sad, happy, angry,a ny mood. They can say hi or bye also. Very nice poem.

"Life sings of us

a beautiful poem, I often find that music can amplify my mood. Just like poetry, and your poem has made me even happier than before I read it.

Your poetry does sing of nature, or life.
Wonderful poem (but then, what else do you create)

This poem floats like a sweet, sweet lullaby itself, tracing birth to remembrance and ending ... beautifully written and song-like Marge!

Best wishes,

Marge, if life sings us so many songs, I guess that's why there are so many "grammys".

Love your work....as always

Serenity, my child~
I do love singing ... and I hum the memory of friends.  Thanks, love.

Balladeer~
I'm glad you enjoyed.
I'm not a granny yet !
(Oh, ... you said GRAMMY !)
Yeah ... makes sense to me.  
Love you .... and it figures
that a Balladeer would like a
poem about songs.

A song can mean so many different things, depending on the mood...so can life's songs! Perfectly in tune, Marge.

Gosh, thanks !  I'm glad this has been so well-received ... I was just humming the memories of a friend when it jumped into my heart this morning.

You will find a cornucopia of talent within these walls of Passion's.
Kiss the kiddies goodnight for me.

I'm gonna take that a gigantic compliment.
THANK YOU.

Life sings of us
sweet lullabies
Kisses us softly
then says
goodbye

~Marge~, this is beautiful...

Enjoyed this one very much...

regards, sudhir.
