Poem to Life

 


  Poem to Life 30' secs preview

 

Spread little wings just 20 years ago

Began to smile as often as the river flow           

Opened those dark eyes so lively and smart

Glad to meet the world for a brand new start

 

A big family all around

Wealthy and busy, money making bound

Lonely in a crowd, adored by mum

Soon left to splash to the life sun

 

Europe became a home, and friends a big house

Some of them will stay, some will run like a little mouse

 

This is the story of a young bedroom lie

Who’s stronger than life and will never die

But a million smiles are stronger than a sin

Please never give up, somehow you will win

 

One night a smile, opened arms confusing love

Then on this tender life landed a black dove

Trembling heart, sweet desire and sparkling joy

In such a little time your life became a toy

 

I hope someday life reads this poem through

Then thinks it over and gives joy back to you

 

This is the story of a young bedroom lie

Who’s stronger than life and will never die

But a million smiles are stronger than a sin

Please never give up, somehow you will win

 

I met you soon after the four letter illness

I saw you in your beauty and paranoid perfection

I shared a little bit of your time and your mess

Life’s been un fair, played you like a game of chess
