Melodies To Sing - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Melodies to sing,
From past seasons to remember...
Please for reasons to be kept,
Unexplained.
As they are stored in one's mind,
As treasures not to forget.

Years to live speed by so quickly.
And periods of repeated tears to cry,
Drip to dry from one's eyes to clear.
With it realized emotions to experience,
Is a part of living one's life to bloom and live.
To grow and make room to wisen the mind.
And accept fresh adventures to be explored,
As these times come to go to not be denied.

Melodies to sing,
To remember from past seasons...
Always seem to recapture and subtract,
Disappointments and mistakes made...
To move on from them and not wish them back.

Melodies to sing,
Restores to keep one's mind intact.
To know a happiness earned,
Whenever it comes to be done 'is' fact.
And not mistaken for something else,
Than the blessing it is to welcome.

'What is that infectious song you keep singing?
I like the melody.
But the words?
They make no sense.'

~You know,
I never thought about that myself.
But as long as this melody lingers on,
The sense of that meant...
Seems more important than anyone listening,
To seek a significance connected to intention.~

'OH.
I only asked because I never heard it before.'

~Me either.
But ignoring my happiness,
By something that distracts...
Is not about to happen or be allowed.~

'But the words.
They make no sense.
Did you hear me? '

Melodies to sing,
To remember from past seasons...
Always seem to recapture and subtract,
Disappointments and mistakes made...
To move on from them and not wish them back.
