Amazing Grace....

In dark of night I sing for you
My voice lifts up in song!

Alone am I in this cold world
Where right is now all wrong

You took my heart and crushed it here
Beneath your heel of scorn

No longer can I bear a pain Iíve known
since the time I was born

So now I retreat within my shell
Let those who shine prevail

I take my leave of heartís desire
And thus will end my tale.

Ok..your turn!! Pick a song and write lyrics for it.

Oh-o-lady bright!
I weep your tears
that dripped..down
on me -eeeeee...

I... never guessed
how still the flame
would shine down
on me....

A lot of poems can be sung to the tune of Amazing Grace... because Amazing Grace is simply ballad format...

I do like the way this is written, Sharon... the formatting is nice, and the tune of the song is a nice enhancement... but I'll pass on your offer to write new lyrics to a song that already has them, as I used to do that as a habit and have recently overcome it, for what I think is an improvement in my poetry overall...

If you write well to the tune of a song then, I suppose it's a good exercise nonetheless... and I did enjoy this poem.  Nicely done, PDV.
