As a new poet, I took the next step to write lyrics for a song. The song leader put it to music. As it was sung this morning, I couldn't control my tears of joy.

Anticipation was high
I could hardly wait
to hear a song for the first time.
I was new at poetry
but its reward were many
and now I took a new risk
to test the limits.
My pastor’s new series announced --
a challenge I tried to resist
I wrote a few words
then I put them away
but something just kept tugging
at my vulnerability.
I took that big step --
the words were sent
to a friend who understood music.
She could have laughed
at my childish attempt but instead
she searched for a tune.
An invitation to be there
as they worked on the song
was declined because of a previous call.
So this morning I sat there
with my pulse speeding up.
I soon would hear that song.
The announcement was made
how this song came to be
my pressure continued to climb.
The intro was played
and the tune filled the air
as joy made my heart flutter
and my eyes started to tear
something was happening
which I would never have dreamed.
I felt as if God was filling me
with the love Jesus spoke of so many times
and the Spirit gave new life
to this spirit of mine.
There’s no way to express
what this did for me
except to write these words
for others to see.

Congratulations to you Larry. I know that feeling as I too wrote a Christmas song "THIS SPECIAL BABY BOY" when I heard it sung with music to the public I cried. Beautiful, thank you for sharing.
Newfie Hugs, Rose

Loved the poem, but you piqued my curiosity. Post the song you wrote. I may not be able to hear the singing, but if it's anything like your poetry, I know that my heart will be uplifted.
