Suddenly, Magic

Standard

Because there need to be more friendship poems in this world:

Suddenly, Magic

 

Once upon a time

I found myself a bit adrift

Needing just a little lift

To get me through another day.

Then the Music and the Rhyme

Asked if they could cut in—

Asked when the dance would begin—

Then how they blew me away!

 

And

Suddenly the magic

Came tumbling from our fingers:

Every melody that lingers,

And the gentle ebb and flow

Of where the harmony could go

Came and went just as it should—

Who could have dreamed we’d sound that good?

One more time

Let’s run it through—

Imagine all that we could do!

Just the Rhyme

And the Music

And me.

 

Now, I know it may seem strange,

But I felt a little scared

Because I never would have dared

To wish for magic before.

But this is such a welcome change

From the fear that blinded me.

And, boy, now that I can see,

I know I’m going back for more!

 

‘Cause

Suddenly the magic

Came tumbling from our fingers:

Every melody that lingers,

And the gentle ebb and flow

Of where the harmony could go

Came and went just as it should—

Who could have dreamed we’d sound that good?

One more time

Let’s run it through—

Imagine all that we could do!

Just the Rhyme

And the Music

And me.

 

Who would ever have guessed

In a hundred million years

That I could pack up all my fears

And learn to be myself again?

So now I’ll try my very best

To learn life’s melody by heart,

Playing each and every part,

And trading my “if” for a “when!”

 

For

Suddenly the magic

Came tumbling from our fingers:

Every melody that lingers,

And the gentle ebb and flow

Of where the harmony could go

Came and went just as it should—

Who could have dreamed we’d sound that good?

One more time

Let’s run it through—

Imagine all that we could do!

Just the Rhyme

And the Music

And me.

  1. Music sure helps me out too. Especially the “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs”. I find I need to be reminded of HIM and HIS help very frequently. That makes all the difference.

Ramble back at me...
