You Just Happened
~*Marge Tindal*~

I wasn't looking for a song
you just happened to come along
Now I sing you

Going on my merry way
just like any other day
Now I sing you

You happened along
when my life was out of song
You just happened

Gave me a melody
to sing within the heart of me
You just happened

My heart's filled to capacity
with the song you brought to me
I'm so glad you happened

I'm pleased you stuck around
giving my heart a happy sound
I'm so glad you happened

You will always be
Top Of The Charts with me
My favorite melody
I'm really glad you happened

Gave me a melody
to sing within the heart of me


It really did, nice poem, Marge...

Regards, sudhir

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

There are two elements almost always present in your work, Marge:  trust and optimism. I wish I could always be as light and open as you!

I loved it, it was so beautiful. Don't you love it when someone brings a melody to your life when your least expecting it  . Great job!

It "just happened"? I think there was a reason that it did so...and this, like all your others, "just happens" to be a beautiful poem!

Yeah, Marge, sometimes the most wonderful things "just happen"...the most wonderful people "just happen" into your life. I have been blessed with some beautiful friendships...the latest of which is ours. This is a beautiful poem. "A friend is someone who knows your song and can sing it to you if you forget it.".
Love ya Marge!

Love and hugs,

Marge,

Wonderful things always happen when we least expect them.  This is really beautiful, but I would expect nothing less from you.  You always speak straight from your heart.

From one 'crooner' to another ...
I SING YOU !

Elizabeth~
Thank you for the nice comments.
It is appreciated by this lady.

Lil' Lizzie~
I've memorized the songs of many ...
and what a chorus they make.
I really liked your comments, hon.
You're a favorite melody of my heart.

Tracie~
You touch me with your sweet comments.
I thank you.

Kit~
To lift the spirits of another is
one of the joys in the songs our hearts sing.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.
