A Song That Stays

A Song That Stays

I want a song that stays
A forever song that starts out strong
A sentimental sing along
One that has everything to say
Not holding back in its sweet persuade
With a memorable melody
That haunts and envelopes me
And repeats and plays back continuously
Making me sense its grip intensely
So that I have to dance to the beat
Swept off my feet in its hold

I want a love that stays
One that lingers in the same way
Where its promises replay real
And I can just let loose and feel
Trusting in its implicit honesty 
A humbled touch with modesty
And wherever I go, I will know
This love is completely with me 
Tuned for my heart's honed pleasure
A beautiful bond, tethered together
Everlasting, like a song that stays

Hi Greg. You do know a lot of good old romantic movies, so I am sure you know very good romantic love songs....I think you should do your poem if you are so inspired now. I think love should be like a love song....set on repeat and continually touching your soul with its forever inspiration...like a song that never goes away but stays and stays, touching you emotionally. Thank you for your support and the pin.  Love n Hugs, xo ;)

Hi Lodigiana. Thank you.  What a nice compliment!  Just as I can get hooked on a song I love and play it over and over, I am the same way about love...and want it to keep playing forever in that dream state of mind. Though there can be a lot of hurt in this world, there can also be great love that lasts. I believe that with all my heart. xo (((hugs)))0

This is a WONDERFUL piece which (based solely upon my own personal interpretation) well illustrates A Soul Reaching Out , and seeking to find its counterpart in another individual.

Cherie, I'm always intrigued when I read works such as this, because they never fail to echo the yearnings of my own Soul-In-Searching.

ANY MAN who wins your amorous affections will be a lucky one.

Well done my Friend.

Jeremy

Hey J. You have interpreted this poem exactly as its intent....yearning, like a song that never ends and haunts the soul, to find love of same staying power and beauty, that goes on and on, and never ends as well. The staying power of love is something that I know is attainable, but has been like a floating ghost that taunts me.

You are very sweet. Thank you. ;)  I appreciate your kind support. xo ;)

Hi  Marion. Thank you. I believe there is love that lasts like a love song that ever plays, reminding one of why they are alive in its mesmerizing effect. Relationships are work and challenging, with risk of getting hurt,  but I will always believe in love...have seen its beauty and do not want to live without it.  If you seek something with all your heart, surely God has the answer. xo Love n Hugs, xo💓

" SING SOMETHING SIMPLE ? " Suddenly, IT, all falls into place. Who likes any " thing " overly complicated to bring distraction from attraction....of the physical world ? And, natures glory !!! To, give us all we need, to celebrate through rhyme and verse, the " joy of living " as well AS LOVING. Obviously. You have to understand the worth of what you have, in historic terms, as presented to you....in messages sent through works of ethical and spiritual others. Equally pleased to be where real enrichment comes. To be toasted by merry-making and ground-shaking !!!  :) :)

Hey Beautiful girlfriend!  Thank you. There are songs that can bring back beautiful memories of love and say exactly what we feel. I remember playing back songs over and over again that spoke to my heart...I want the same with love....one that constantly stays and feels beautiful because it is genuine and says what the heart feels.  Thank you for understanding me. Love n Hugs, xo ;)
