Grey-Sky Lullaby

Grey-Sky Lullaby

A Poem by TadKent
"

I was asked to write a song for a wedding. Here the resulting lyrics.

"

 

I'll try this on with you

I'll write a song for you

Lay out this quilt on a hill

Listen for the birds as they

Sing that pretty story of

A girl who found a love that was real

It's ok, It's ok.

 

You'll put on that pretty dress

The one the crowd will like the best

White dress you'll only wear for a day

Then we'll see our families

You're smiling as you walk with me

The sky will watch the doves fly away

It's our day, It's our day

 

Oh, oh falling in love from the start

Oh, but now that I know who you are

I love you more

Breathe slow, honey oh darling we both know

I wouldn't trade you for a star,

I love you so

 

Oh, oh, falling in love from the start,

Oh, but now that I know your whole heart

I love you more

Breathe slow, honey oh darling we both know

I wouldn't trade you for the stars,

I need you so...

Author's Note

TadKent
I know the last two stanzas are almost identical, i just included both because one is sung softley, and one is belted at full volume. I didn't want to include only one because I didn't want the song to be too short.

I can understand your authors note on the two stanzas, nicely said; i wouldn't want to cut it short either. This sounds like a really nice song for a wedding. I'm sure it was nice to having been asked to write a song for the wedding as well. I love the title, and I love the picture of the romance in the song lyrics, great work. Lovely.

Well, it's a really nice poem, definitely a romantic piece.
I'm not much of a romantic, but I'm glad to have stopped by to read this. It's well written, and definitely projects the emotions that I think you were trying to portray.

Actually, I'm not a real good poet myself, but I can promise you that this looked real good from a passerby's point of view!
I loved reading it, and I think I might stop by another of your pieces.
Thanks for sharing!

So lovely, so romantic - a perfect song of love from a Groom to his Beloved Bride.
