I'M FILLED WITH SONG
by
Linda L. Dowd

~*~

Alas, alas,
This sorry lass,
Has gone awhile
Without a smile.
My life is fraught
For I have naught,
No seeds to sow,
Nowhere to go.
Time ticks by
Yet here I lie,
Without a hope
And cannot cope.
I shan't live long
Without a song,
No tears to cry
Tho' soon I'll die...
Behold! A light!
Drinks up the night!
Beyond yon' door,
Perhaps there's more!
Shouldst I dare
Cross over there?
Perhaps a peek
For love I seek.
The lure is strong,
I shan't stay long.
It beckons me
Across a sea.
The winds do blow,
Yet I must go...
Now all is still,
I've drunk my fill.
I must return
From my sojourn...
What's that I hear?
I need not fear.
'Tis tunnel dark
With sound of harp.
A golden beam
Shines so serene,
At yonder end
Beyond the bend.
To God I pray
I'll find my way...
I see a face!
A smiling face!
I'm so aglow,
It frees my soul!
On wings of dove
I've found pure love!
I soar on high,
No more to cry.
The pain is gone,
I'm filled with song!

~*~

Your singing is music to my ears! Actually, I was a "sorry lass" when I wrote this! I had double pneumonia and was near death. I was almost in a state of delerium when I wrote this!
...but please, don't stop singing just because I am now healthy and happy!

Warm hugs for your loving gesture!

Linda,

Then sweet lady, you should be sick more often. NOT!

I love this. Wonderful thoughts.
It is beautiful and I especially liked the ending.

I find it interesting when you write in these 3-4 word lines and keep the flow going so well. Am going to go back to look at it again, cause I don't remember if it rhymes...it flows, though, and I like that, too.

Enjoyed greatly, Hugs,  Pat

Love it.

You are quite welcome! I enjoy singing in the morning--literally and otherwise! It pleases me that you cared to listen to this "song"--and liked it!

Morning hugs,
Linda

lol....You have quite a wry (or is that "rye") sense of humor!

Fortunately (or is that "unfortunately"! tehe) I have a strong constitution and seldom get sick!  (touch wood!)

double-pneumonia delirium?

so happy to learn of this as a thing of the past, conquered with healing

lovely rhythm and rhyme here!

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

Yes, it took a whole lot of "healing" to get over that bout of pneumonia! Having been that ill makes me appreciate being healthy that much more!

Thank you for your lovely reply! I appreciate your thoughtfulness!

May your day be filled with song!

...and may "love's music" continue to sing in your heart as well! You made many of the Pipsters' Valentine's Day even more special with all your Candy Heart poems and photographs! Thank you, Dear One!

Hi, Sue!

It pleases me that my poem pleases you! Yes, I am filled with song--well, most of the time! I do have moments when I sing life's song a bit off key--but not for long!

Warm hugs and lots of smiles,
Linda
