Poem: If I was an Instrument 2021

I would play a love song to my heart,

Like Nina, Natalie, Louis & Day; I would play songs,

To my love ones, friends & family—my beautiful love child,

That resemble somewhat like me:

If I was an instrument my darling, —my dearest heart,

My instrument would, replace the many tears fallen,

In my dreams, believing you and I were on the same team:

I would make your heart smile—dance to each note,

Each melody, even if your heart finds my songs,

Less than charming: I would play, my instrument,

Oh, so magnificently; beyond the bluest and highest sky;

You would hear God greatest melody & know,

That it was Christ that save and blesses you and me.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
