Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

My Home, Your Heart

~

‘Tis in your loving heart that I found home.

This orphaned soul roamed, wandering alone.

To find a shelter he can call his own.

I travelled distances, I reached the moon.

With your bright eyes, back to earth I was drawn.

.

I know you’re not mine, but for now ’tis fine.

I know the grounds I stand, I draw the line.

But when I’m with you, I feel so complete.

‘Tis like coming home, embracing my fate.

.

And how else should I see it, in what way?

When all things seemingly are meant to be.

I am not sure of everything in me.

But why with you, I found my certainty.

‘Tis like coming home to eternity.

~

    I wish you well.

    I think this would work exceptionally well as a song – a ballad. The words are lovely and meaningful, and it has a rhythm and cadence that is very musical. The way that each line is self-contained, yet linked in meaning and sound.

    You should consider singing it and making a recording, and posting that here.

    This piece is actually a raw sonnet material. I just don’t have time yet to sit down and polish it to meet the strict requirements of the sonnet form. The sonnets really work well when read loud because of its rhyme and meter. It’s unfortunate that I don’t have a gift of voice to sing, but maybe if I could find a person to give melody to my poems then they may become songs that I would love to listen.

    You can find my other finished sonnet pieces here:
