Unsung

I prefer the song that are unsung
These I love far better than the other ones
Unsung songs are secret things
Hummed above tarnished diamond rings
Melodies that resonate
More in the bones than our mind state
They are not the lyrics of the time
Or of any time that comes to mind
But rather of the hidden hours
In between the sun and showers
Empty pictures frames and vases
Fancy words and dull catch-phrases

I prefer the songs that lie above our hearts
And farther off beyond the stars
Where no one knows the language of
A simple sentiment of love
And yet these are the songs we hold
While working hard to strive for gold
Further, they do not require words
And more easily express joy or hurt

These are the songs I love to sing
Because they encompass everything
