A Song For Her

  
I sat alone in silence
until my soul was clear
I picked up my instrument 
and sang for someone dear 

Closest to my heart 
A space reserved for only one
Trying to write a song night after night 
adding words into a meaningful sum

Playing this worn guitar
I found at a garage sale 
Strumming the few chords I know
when my voice fails

Yet I sing in my room
as if you were here 
A neighbor listened and sang her own 
as my words resonated to all who would hear

The lyrics are complete 
It’s time to let you hear me play
this song to win your heart 
and convince you to stay 
for a lifetime. 

Dedicated to my lovely wife, Shellet. Thanks for reading.
