.....AND SHE SHALL HAVE MUSIC:

......AND SHE SHALL HAVE MUSIC:
She was born into a musical family,
So it was inevitable the piano she would play.
From a very early age,
New tunes she did learn to play.

At four years of age she began lessons.
How she looked forward to them each week.
Later on came the examinations,
To gain experience she did seek.

As the years rolled by
Classical music filled the air.
Her joy of music was evident,
As she played without a care.

Then the teenage years came.
Rock 'n Roll" was all the rage.
With the classical music in the background,
She played music to suit her age.

After her teenage wedding.
To the love of her life.
She still loved the sound of music.
Whilst being the dutiful wife.

Her daughter loved to dance.
Music blasting from her room.
Mother didn't mind at all,
As George Michael's voice did boom.

After the passing of her husband,
Music came by a different way.
She saw a Daniel O Donnell concert,
A variety of songs sang his way.

Many concerts later.
In many venues in the US and the UK.
Her love of music is still the love of her life,
Hearing it makes life ok.

......And she shall have music,
Whether it be classical or modern you see.
The person I have written about.
Is about my life and loves of me.
