Poetry Friday: Try by Jillian Edwards

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Try by Jillian Edwards

If you were a melody
I'd sing you all the time
And if your hands were poetry
I'd memorize every line
And if every look you gave me were
A different hue or shade of color
I'd learn how to paint you
You know I'd try

And if you were words in a story
You'd be in a book that's overdue
That's somewhere hidden in my closet
Looked a million times for you
And if you were just one day
You'd be the very first of May
And I'd be sunlight in your skies
Or at least I'd try

- selected lyrics from Try by Jillian Edwards

My favorite part:
"And if you were words in a story
You'd be in a book that's overdue
That's somewhere hidden in my closet
Looked a million times for you"

Thanks for the YouTube. I never would have imagined that the song would sound like that!

I love these love lyrics! So sweet but not sappy. Going to send this one to my husband on May 1 (as I'll be out of town). Thanks for sharing! -- Laura Purdie Salas
