Can I capture the music that forms in my heart?
Can I write down the words, so they never depart?
Why just the words and not melodies too?
If a melody formed, I’m not sure what I’d do.
Rhyme and rhythm come easy it seems I’ve a knack.
If I tried to add music would it hold me back?
I don’t read or write music and barely can sing.
I don’t play a note, it’s just lyrics I bring.
If the Lord gives me music for sharing someday,
I am confident God will provide me a way
To capture the music one note at a time,
Align with the rhythm and flow with the rhyme.
If God makes a way and I hear music too,
I’ll be eager to capture it, share it with you.
Until then I’ll share poetry void of a tune.
You’ll just hear the words spoken; I’ll not try to croon.
