Why I Love To Write
Every morning when I awake A song or a rhythm slips out from my sleep
and the tune remembered plays over again
my lips speak them and speak them repetitiously
I say it and say it and say it again
And all my work comrades no longer grin.
So, this is why I want to write
The song, the verse the poetry the story
Plays in my mind
then up to my voice
I no longer stop it
cause it's ALWAYS there
And song and verse took up residency here
It's part of my life the stories of old
The songs of midnight
the tunes of gold
My mothers to blame,
for this I know
She planted the songs
and the rhythms dear
And I carry them,
whenever I go
Into the night,
into the cold,
into the day light They are part of my soul.
And I have Babe to thank
my mother so dear Who gave me the tunes and the rhythms in youth
And now I pass them on to you
That you shall have song, rhythms and tunes that carry you through
Nights of terror, and days of dread
But with the song, rhythms and tunes will dance in your head
And what will be there in times of trouble? Songs, tunes, and arrhythmical toys that will take you through times of trouble
And all I can say
after I've said this is why I love to write and this is why I know longer dread
So the songs, the tunes, the rhythms given makes me love life,
makes me want heaven
And Ma ma's verse forever it shall play
and the day it's turned off
nothing to say
But, perhaps my mantle of children will know
the songs, the tunes, the rhythms of joy
and think not a curse but a gift to employ.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
