Okay. . . I have another one for all of you. . .

Write me a poem that begins with the line:

"Melody of my heart, song of my life. . ."

I may write two or three with this line before it's all over. . .

I know that this challenge will be met with wonderful poems and I am looking forward to reading them!

I will try  ...and will post whenever I get finished and get the nerve! LOL

Melody of my heart, song of my life
Searching for the perfect note
To match the beating of my strife
I manage to put a smile on my face

Singing alone with the one in mind
Whose out in jail crying to find
My head against the wall
Wailing over his fall

The doors are shot close
For us to smell the rose
Growing in my yard
In the ground so hard
Is impossible

Sitting at the table
Together
In the blender
We just don't mix

How can you fix
Something that just don't fit
When the light is lit

But he can write songs
About how much he longs
For me to hear how good he is
Claiming my life his

I wish it could be true
It is only a brew
To get drunk on
When we can't get no satisfaction
From the juke-box
In my socks
Standing up ready to dance
My trance
Melody of my heart, song of my life
