Sing you, for the children
Sing, we’re all the same,,
Sing for joy and happiness
Even through the pain.
Sing you, for the future
Sing for all you gain,
Sing for the tomorrows
Sing through all the pain.
Sing you, for those suffering
Sing without the blame,
Sing with much forgiveness
Sing thru all the pain.
Sing you, thru all weather
Sing thru all the rain,
Sing, your voices raised on high,
Sing thru all the pain.
Sing you, ’cause you’re living
Sing thru all the strain,
Sing for all those loving
Much stronger than …
… your pain!

Great poem Penny. 🙂
Thanks I actually thought up a tune to go with it by alas I don’t write music, sigh, still who knows … 🙂
And I sing along with you, Penny. Lovely post. 🙂
Thank you, I bet you have a lovely singing voice Celestine, just a hunch, but I’m right I think! 🙂
We are surrounded by song. Sometimes we need to stand still & listen.
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
BTW – I sing.
…badly – LOL
Yes we do my friend! 🙂 And you and I can sing together then … we’ll be a matched pair in that as well! 🙂 xox
Touching last three lines and a sweet photo
Thanks, I was inspired for this one Padmini!
Stunning words Penny ~ reminds me to hear the music and listen for even when I can’t seem to hear it at all. This should be in your book 🙂 ~ universal and beautiful. Thank you dearest friend … Going to sing a tune now to my puppy! xo Love to you always, RL
You know after you said that I realized I could actually hear the music to the words, now all I need to do is find someone who writes music, lol! Thank you Robyn, my bestest buddy ever, much love to you with hugs and biggest ones to your puppy! xoxox
You are writing about mother-nature herself and her cries for mankind to stop with all this war, hate, creed, and just get along. Magnificent! poem…:)
Thank you Charlie!
You’re so welcome…
I’d like to hear your input on my imaginary friend Jimmy. 🙂
Beautiful poem Penny
Thank you Roxi, It was one of “those” days. Now I just need to find the right person to put the words to music! I can hear it in my head! lol
AnElephantCant claim he’s a singer
Although he is pretty mean on a trumpet
And when he’s in the shower
He toots with great power
You just gotta like it or lump it
AnElephantCant be modest, I’m guessing he sounds pretty darn good in the shower, especially with his trumpet blowing!
“La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la” I can’t carry a tune to save my life, but I’m now singing 🙂
Excellent, everyone should sing, it’s uplifting, I don’t sing well either, but still enjoy the process! 🙂
I like that … I like that a lot. Although if I was to start singing, it would cause pain or sound like a cat in pain haha. Great post though Penny Thank you
Your welcome Alastair, I”m sure your singing is lovely! 🙂
Haha, yeah it’s lovely – if you like the sound of a cat in pain. I was in a school play once and the music teacher told me to mime as my singing was atrocious LOL
