The Retired Bloke


When you’re feeling down

Needing a lift, a boost 

When all around seems grey

Full of doom and despair

Music inspires and heals

The ills of your life, the strife

Creates waves of positivity

Raises spirits from low to high

Every beat, striking the right note

From moody clouds to blue sky

Murky water to glistening pools 

Rhythms in time to every heartbeat

Transforming seamlessly new emotions

From hostility to ecstasy 

Pessimism to optimism 

Music moves the very core

The soul, life’s spirit 

Punctuating every breath with love, hope and happiness.

    Music is a great healer, I have been listening to it all my life, it is my lifeblood.
