When she Sings (An Ode to Brandy)


No one understands the healing power
In her voice like I do
I get all choked up trying to explain
Exactly, what her voice does
When she sings my world is at peace
Way back when she saved me from my pain
This ode to Brandy is my way to say thanks
I haven’t met her yet but my time is coming
The only thing I’d ask of her is to sing for me
Her voice speaks directly to my heart strings
Hence, this random epiphany
Partly entitled (An ode to Brandy)
I can’t explain it I truly can’t
If I could explain it
This is the best fit
Her voice
Sounds of the purest rainfall
I wasn’t planning on scripting this poem
It was her voice that inspired it
I was reading something
Another poem
By someone else
Her voice forced me to listen to it
Only to end up writing this
If there are others like me
All on one accord
That, angels rejoice when she sings
Let the church say, AMEN! ! ! !
So, I penned this poem for you Brandy
Because your voice saved me way back when

Signed a loving fan

    Excellent! This is a poem of a very high quality, a wholesome tribute to a singer who sang to the harmony of your heart and touched the cords to synthesize a melodious tune. Well written. The note adds.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
