Moonlight Sounds

Tell me of a time

you left your safe home,

whisked yourself away

to the midst of the unknown; 

a ballad you keep singing

it is dancing in your head,

if it were to leave that brain of yours

you’d might as well be dead; 

for even in this vast unknown

many stories still hold true,

scenes will change, faces will fade

but the mood will still be blue; 

hum your tune, preach your words

your bible, the great book,

for in a land so far away

the heart of moons, vibrations took;

hallowed cries, moody blues

snare and tongue so sharp,

vibing as words roll to ear

sounds that stand as one’s own heart.
