Treasure Island

Danny Speicher

(February 26,1982 / Lawrence, KS)

Sing Me a Song


Sing me a song so I can sleep tonight
Tell me stories of mystery or woe
So, for a moment, my troubles may go
And, just once, all in my world might seem right

Sing me a song so I can sleep tonight
Make each word seem as if written for me
Don’t let your voice waiver or go off key
Sing to me until morning becomes night

Sing me a song so I can sleep tonight
Although my heart no longer feels that love
Though to the side, my emotions, are shoved
Sing me a song and make the darkness bright

Sing me a song so I can sleep tonight
So, just once, all in my world might seem right

Sing me a song, a song that’s just for me
Yes, I know I can’t give you what you want
You know I refuse to put up a front
But, oh, how I miss songs that set me free

Sing me a song, a song that’s just for me
Make it pure and make it rise far above
Bitterness that tails unrequited love
Please, sing and remind me what I’m to be

Sing me a song, a song that’s just for me
I miss your voice pushing me to stay strong
I know your very life was a love song
I know your heart paid a terrible fee

Oh, please sing me a song, one just for me
One just for me, so that I might be free

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
