Sing to me, my soul is reaching out
Daring you to touch it with your melody
As your melodious voice cascades down
It touches places no one can see.

As you bare yourself through the lyrics and lines
I watch as you fill my heart with truth
Something so poetic and introspective
It goes beyond time and it moves

You reach down and
Show me who you really are
Your truth is so inspiring
But my soul only reaches out so far

Years of fear, days of sorrow
Hand of hurt and hearts of lies
Have surrounded my soul
And it just wants to hide

Letís be gentle now
These places arenít used to the touch
Letís be careful
Iím afraid Iíll loose too much

The words you say slowly surround
My Peace I give, My forgiveness is for you
I was acquainted with grief and filled with sorrow
Listen as you see the truth

My soul cries out
The precious gift of my being
I give it to You Lord
I realize the truth I am seeing

My soul is reaching out
Singing a new melody
Worship the Lord on high
I want the world to see.

This was a very honest expression. Thank you for sharing. You ministered your point. I don't know the nuts and bolts of poetry or free verse, but I enjoyed reading what your heart had to say. God Bless!!

Never mind that the rhyme and metered flow wasn't there...the Heart and Soul was! And that's what is important. You spoke your heart, the truth and you did your best. Good job.
