A song for you both

Processed with VSCOcam with h4 preset

I’m crafting a song, a short little ditty
that will resonate through the years
with its unforgettable melody. I’ll name
every note an emotion and every pause
the sea between them. I’ll teach you both
the tune and tempo on stormy nights
and the crisp mornings that follow,
and together we’ll sacrifice our shame
and scorn the glares of music critics
as we venture closer to tonal perfection.
And should a beat come to join the fray
we’ll craft a dance, a fine little jig,
to which we’ll add claps and waves
that will make your mother laugh in fits
on Sunday mornings before breakfast.
I’m crafting a song, one you’ll both learn
by heart and by soul, even though
not one note will we ever need to sing.
