    Lyrics in progress

    Will you?

    Will you let me hold your hand

    when you are lonely

    Will you let me smile

    when you walk in the room?

    Will you let me cry

    when I see you feelin' blue

    Will you let me be a friend that is true to you?

    I like what you've put together so far. Do you play an instrument?

    Yes, 'tis a classic...and sometimes, it still makes me cry when I read it.

    Yes I used to be a professional Trumpet/flugal player, stage, vocals and limited keyboards. (about 10 years prior to health issues)
    Now a days I just write/compose using a PC package instead. Sample

    @Wegs,
    I don't normally share this sort of detail as the musical side of me has a very sad story attached...
    Do you play an instrument?

    Sunday Park

    Brightly filters sunlight
    through the foliage
    of the scarred old tree
    bearing knife marks
    Joe loves Mary, 1963
    broken hearts, carved so bold
    for anyone to see

    Sunday morning park
    basking in the sun
    flowers blooming, beetles zooming
    so inviting to have fun

    Car pulls up the parking lot
    slamming doors, engine hot
    blankets, dishes, picnic baskets
    on the grass that is still wet
    balls and bats, strung out net
    now we’re ready, we’re all set.

    Watch it Johnny, don’t do that
    Steven, see, you broke the bat
    oh, where is that catsup now
    we need more coals, this meat is raw
    oh, my, I’m just to old for this
    I should have stayed at home
    mother, look, you see this bump
    he hit me with a stone

    Sunday, funday park
    blazing in the sun
    people bustling, children tussling
    all pretending to have fun

    Time is up, time to go
    it’s getting onto six
    let’s break it up, pack it in
    no, no, no, no more tricks
    we’ll be back next week for sure
    you can count on that
    hurry up now, let’s get going
    has anyone seen my hat

    Sunday evening park
    slowly sets the sun
    litter scattered, flowers battered
    all is quiet from the fun

    Dimly filters sunlight
    through the foliage
    of the scarred old tree
    bearing knife marks
    I love Mary, Joe is crazy, 1963
    broken hearts, pierced with arrows
    but no one to see.

    I used to look up at the night-time sky
    And ask myself the age-old question: “Why?
    Why does the sky appear so dark at night?”
    And then I found out: Because there’s no light!

    What?
    Let there be light,
    day and night!
    Don’t judge the night sky
    with a naked eye.
    Due to endless space,
    there’s still a trace.
    It’s a common misunderstanding.
    The universe is still expanding.
    So, don’t be misled.
    There’s light…in the infrared.

    Of course the Universe is still expanding –
    At least the Big Bang is my understanding –
    Though if the Universe is dense enough
    A Big Crunch may start pulling back all stuff.

    Swallowing Butterflies

    Hurriedly on my way to a meeting,
    I met a pause in the hallway -
    She wore my crooked smile
    While I carried my anxiety
    My arms full of notebooks
    Scattered pages poking out
    Dog-eared and dirty with use
    Like an agenda of worries
    I continue to write minutes -
    Hours of concerned intentions
    Drawn forth by my worn pen tip
    From a dark inkwell of insecurity
    Contracts I write with myself
    I envied that pause -
    Moving counterclockwise
    She had so much time
    To breathe

    Code:
    [CENTER]No
    names
    will be
    mentioned
    in the
    description
    of this
    portrait
    
    This man once welcomed me with wide open arms
    
    I fell into
    his trap like
    a lost and
    wandering sheep
    I tried to do
    everything he
    told me to do
    afraid he might
    turn me out
    
    But now I am
    strong enough
    I now     need
    not be       his
    slave        for I
    can             now
    at last              stand on
    my own                 two feet
    
    No names have been mentioned for this portrait
    but if that man reads this and knows who he is
    I can only say I am sorry but it is not my fault
    I have no power to save him from knowing who he is[/CENTER]

    Thanks.

    It’s someone I know personally but (hopefully) not someone anyone on this forum might know (and it’s definitely not anyone on this forum).

    Old man

    Old man sitting, rocking , dreaming
    summer evening, swamp air steaming
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke
    pipestem worn, burned out bowl
    crops of corn, grandma's stole
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke
    Jody's dog, what a scare
    Billy's hog, last year's fair
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke

    Old man, sitting all alone
    thinking and a'dreamin, ain't no phone
    he's had a good life by and by
    now he's resting , time does fly
    silver watch, cousin Joe
    boxing match, what a blow
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke
    caught a trout in the rain
    damn that gout causin pain
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke

    Old man sitting, rocking , dreaming
    summer evening, swamp air steaming
    he's a'thinkin, puffin smoke
