Always (the song) as Inspiration for my poem, Together

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Now forget the song, and turn that line into the title or inspiration for your post.

I’ll be loving you Always
With a love that’s true Always
When the things you’ve planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand Always.

Always.

Days may not be fair Always
That’s when I’ll be there Always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year,

But Always.

Irving Berlin wrote this song in 1925.

My Poem, Together was written 1982 and set to music 2013 by a local Blue Grass Band

TOGETHER
When promises fail
And plans all die
And tomorrows slip from view,
Just take my hand
And we’ll walk together
Creating our world anew.

When pain is great
And fear presses in
And paths seem all astrew,
Just take my hand
And hold it tight
And together we’ll start anew.

As long as you’re there
Anguish I’ll bear
And smile through all the pain
Just take my hand
And I’ll be unafraid
Into that world with you.
