Beautiful Things

Sometimes a quote is all you need to inspire a song - and a life experience. Considering the bleak manner in which I closed out 2013 here is something positive that is currently under pen to herald in 2014, inspired by a quote from James Thurber.

Like the moon on a lake as it shimmers at night

Like a bird on the wind as she struggles with flight

Like a mother and child for the very first time

Like Picasso drawing the perfect line

Like wildflowers on a desert plain

Like hearing your lover call your name

 

Beautiful Things

They seldom last

Beautiful Things

Slip from my grasp

But truly Beautiful Things

They never ask

 

Like a wave that washes across your feet

Like a melodic phrase from a Mozart suite

Like a step-son calling you Dad

Like the first kiss we ever had

Like your favourite home-cooked meal

Like the very first heart you steal

 

Beautiful Things

They seldom last

Beautiful Things

Slip from my grasp

But truly Beautiful Things

They never ask

For attention
