You’re My Music Girl


You’re my music girl,
With the lyrics of life;
Teaching me tunes
About sorrow and strife.

Play me some songs
Under the stars;
You show me Venus
And I’ll show you Mars.

You’re the music girl
With the music of life,
That cuts through the air
Like the blade of a knife.

Petty and Dylan,
And all of the rest,
Sing you the songs
When you’re feeling depressed.

Play me some music girl,
Under the moon;
Sing me the lyrics,
Teach me the tune.

Higher than high,
Lower than low;
I feel your music
Wherever I go.

When you need a friend
In the middle of the night,
I’ll play you the song
That’ll make you alright.

– 1996   Tom Wilcox
A companion piece to my previously submitted "Music Girl" [link]
Thanks to " my-stock " [link] for her sheet music image.

Appreciate the kind words.

:aww: Nice. Why don't you find a song that reflects the mood or theme of this poem, put the lyrics in your description, along with name of song and name of artist, and if you can find a vid link to it, that would be great. Then join :iconmanip-your-music: and submit it, or link me to it and I can submit it for you *points to sig below* (I'm an admin-contributor.) We'd prefer you join though. Including your gorgeous fractals and art, if you could find music to go with them, would be a wonderful addition to our galleries. Just a thought.
