Lasting song

by Susan Chetcuti

Forever a song caught in essence of time,
captured are words holding each precious line.
Its lasting effect plays a memorable theme,
that opens the mind to a place where you've been.

Eyes close as you listen, a total effect.
perfection of song makes it hard to reject.
As lyrical sound starts a tear waterfall,
it won't hold you back from a need to recall.

In silence you hum with its magical tune,
as melody lingers like scented perfume.
Soon memory dims like a flickering light,
but musical voice will hold on to you tight.

Like ripples that waver in showing no end,
a harmony lends, a hand while you mend.
As murmuring callings awaken your soul,
lasting songs echo will fill heart's deep hole.
