Music is my muse; every melody fills me,
For sure the message in the lyrics thrill me.
I’d say it certainly wills me to write.

I can play your heart like a keyboard,
and I can croon your name like a song.
How could our love duet be seen as wrong?

The soundtrack of our lives plays sweetly.

  1. the ” ills” sound through the first part really add a nice back beat rhythm to this walt. The me repetition also sets up a nice break in the end of the third line. the soundtrack of our lives…i wonder what songs we would include in that. what moments we would choose to set to music. would be pick a mix of highs and lows, of fast and slow…or let the whole album maybe just speak to our present moment or a given moment.

  2. there’s so much magic in music and music makes things magical as well – and those songs sang with the loved one are the most beautiful – aren’t they..

  3. You’ve got some lovely musical sounds going there, Walter, with the ‘oohs’ in ‘Music is my muse’, the ‘ill’ sounds, and the ‘oohs’ again in ‘croon’ and ‘duet’.

  4. Oh you music lover you…great stuff! I can relate. I don’t think I could breathe without it. I like how you build up to a metaphorical finale! Bravo. 🙂
