Music Touches the Soul – Just a Montgomery feeling

by graypoet

Gone – what does that word mean to you
Something displaced or something through
Is it something that you can get to come back
Or a train that has gone down another track.

I swear – two words that should mean enough
They strengthen us when the times get tough
Yet if there is a cloud hanging over those two
Maybe you should make sure this is right for you.

Life’s a dance – better shared with another
Yet we have to learn how to move together
We step on toes and we bump out of line
But practise will help us our moves refine.

You do your thing – each of us is free
What includes some may not include me
We each have to make our own choices
And maybe even listen to our own voices.

  1. The very first part of this poem & musical piece is really on spot with how I am feeling today; I am afraid that I am never going to see an old friend again, and that he is truly “gone” not just misplaced by life and it’s goings on, but gone in every sense of the word. I really like the mixed media format of this poem 🙂

    • There are times when I read other posts and feel they were meant for me, sorry for your feeling of loss. I’ve just been reacquainting myself with some of my favorites of old and thought to share a verse with them. Thank you for reading and for your comment. I’m always pleased to know someone stopped by.

      • I sometimes read things (a post, a passage in a book, something completely random), and they seem to speak to exactly how I am feeling at a particular moment. I awoke this morning feeling melancholy as I had been dreaming of an old friend that due to life and it’s various happenings, I have not seen in years. Which brought me to Simon and Garfunkel’s song “Bookends.” Then I read the first part of your poem, and it was exactly where I was at.

        Oh, and I do not usually like C & W, but I think I am going to have to check out Montgomery Gentry. I really liked your selection 🙂

      • lol… thank you. I listen to quite a variety of music, most except for (C)rap or heavy orchestra… some of the ballad singers seem to relax me at times. I hope you find his music enjoyable.

      • I am going to check him out as I also have extremely varied musical tastes except for Rap, and most, but not all C & W. I love classical music especially Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, etc. But, I remain a child of rock at heart (my Dad’s fault; he introduced me very early in life to the rock of the late 60’s and the whole of the 70’s.) Led Zeppelin is my all-time favorite band, and for those really Bipolar moments, nothing beats Pink Floyd 🙂

  2. I am going to have to get some Montgomery Gentry CD’s. I have been listening to him on You Tube. I really like hie style. Thanks for making the introduction!! 🙂
