Music - Poem by Ruby Dodd

There's an old accordian playing in the corner of my heart
By the back roads of my memory long before we had to part
There's a drum thats softly beating notes as gentle as a sigh
And it's turning back life's pages to a time that's long gone by

I was walking home one eveing in the dusky twilight hours
When I heard the classic beauty of a song called wildwood flower
Someone strummed an an old guitar and each note rang wild and true
And it fed my thirsty soul like the love I feel for you

And I heard a singer crooning You will never walk alone
And my heart was touched with sorrow for my loved one who's back home
Well the band was playing always on the day I sailed away
But I didn't know forever was the time that I would stay

Ah! but then young love is foolish and it never thinks things through
All I have now is the music that can link my love to you
And each time I hear an old song how your face fills up my mind
And I know that God made the music from a love for man devine

For it reaches cross the ocean all the rivers all the streams
In the landscape of a lifetime it makes time stand still it seems
Till we're standing close together and can share our love again
Please God let the song keep playing for the music feeds my dreams
