No Spring


Had my daughter take voice lessons when she was in the 5/6 combined class at our local school.  I thought she needed some self confidence and the place where I took the kids for their piano lessons offered voice lessons -so I could get two kids of my four occupied at the same time.  She now exudes self confidence...sailed through college as a dorm resident advisor....is  chosen at her work for outstanding employee...so she's doing well.

Here's a piece she composed and plays on the piano.  I threw the other instruments in and made up the lyrics.....


NO SPRING

These days
I feel you've lost your heart,
You’re breaking away
We’re falling apart
I wish we were still
Two peas in a pod.

I see you and
all we do is nod.
These days are open
And I am changing as I learn,
As leaves turn
And winds change direction…

Refrain:
Times like these I feel there is no hope
Now I need some answers and I need to cope
I’ll change the seasons. Here’s my vote:
I’ll change summer to winter,
Winter to fall
With no spring at all

These Days…Ooh

These days
I trudge along this road
I’m in overload
My season is sad

Refrain

Summer is winter and
Winter will fall
Sadness has entered with
No spring at all
Change rearranges. My seasons seem to crawl.

These days
I feel you've lost your heart,
You’re breaking away
We’re falling apart
I wish we were still
Two peas in a pod.
I see you and all we do is nod.

Refrain

  7. Like mother like daughter! Isn't it cool to see her inspired by the same things you are!

    The music is throwing fits and starts, but I got to hear a little bit of this poignant piece.

    Thank you for sharing it.
