Music as a Friend
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


When looking back I'll have to say
Music has been a friend
It sang me through some tumultous times
Time and time again
It lifted up my spirit sure
And brought me swift relief
And comforted me again as well
When I was faced with grief

It took me to a level that
I never thought it would
And made me recognize the fact
That it really could
God uses music to console
Any needful heart
Pick a genre that you like
And music will do it's part

Listen to those old familiers
Sung by so and so
And see the memories
they bring back
Of not so long ago
So music ...such a gift from God
To all of us lads and lasses
Not on just an individual bases
But as well unto the masses

I have my old familiar favorites
They still are fresh to me
They bring me back to memory lane
Where of times I love to be
And sitting back with relaxation
I play them once again
And thank my God for this great gift
Of music as a friend!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
