What’s Going On

Today I went to the Post Office to purchase postage stamps. As always I was asked which stamps I wanted. I looked at the samples and was surprised to see one of my favorite entertainers from times past-Marvin Gaye.

I remember not too long before his life was taken I won tickets to see him in concert through a radio station give away. My seats were wonderful. There were seats in front of me blocking my view. I could actually see what was going on. He gave an awesome performance that evening. It was a real treat for me.

If Only I Could Sing

There’s a song in me

I wish I could be

The best darn singer

In all eternity.

I would sing

The high notes

And low notes too

To the beat of the drums

And the tune of the bass

Songs of joy

Some of blues

Ones I’d put away

Others I’d use

A melody that speaks for itself

A tune that makes you glow

A sultry sound that awakens the soul

A little country with a lot of giddy-up

I’d open my heart

Let the tunes flow free

That’s locked up inside of me

If only I could sing
