"God's 3rd Book" ~ a poem

Updated: Dec 25, 2020

If ears could see, and eyes could hear

Then I would have nothing to fear

For God’s creations speaks His words

Through songs of bears and little birds

God, The Creator, created creations

That would create songs for a new generation

And God said, “That’s good.” When He saw you and me

But oh how much better if said musically

So He put in our hearts a tune for the ages

A melody to be sung throughout our life stages

So when we relate to a song of reflection

Between each other, we gain new connections

Or if someone writes a song that you can dance to

You lay down your sadness and now you feel brand new

For God made music, to have and to hold

Like a loving connection for our ears and our souls

Three notes together will make a chord

That David played to please the Lord

The chord that Saul would need the most

To keep his connection with the Holy Ghost

When King Saul didn’t know what to believe in

It was the Lord’s music that silenced his demons

And when it all stopped, his anger returned

His hatred for David in his heart just burned

And as for me, the way music heals

Is by giving us strength to face life’s ordeals

We listen, we sing, we play instruments

And we do it again til our hearts are content

A lullaby that puts our babies to sleep

Or a song that is played, when we say vows to keep

Are the things that help us create memories

The things that remind us how good life can be

My lips could not explain the way that I feel

Unlike piano keys which share my deep thoughts concealed

My heart filled with sorrow could never express

The way my guitar speaks of my current distress

The highs and the lows, the ups and the downs

Would be understated with one simple frown

But whenever my hands pull on those strings

God hears the words that I cannot sing
