Mr Lawrence

A wonderful sound, so beautifully heard


A masterpiece of magic


Feelings of peace and calm

All over me emotions are stirred.

I feel my body drift away


toward calm, stillness


Love that surrounds me now


forever in time, this moment will stay


For calm, still is all I find

As I sit and listen


something so beautifully composed


just one moment in time, that fills me with joy

All but for me this beautiful sound was written

        yes I know: I just got the impression this was about some one writing you a poem?
        From the title I'm guessing it was our good Mr. Lawrence! But I could be mistaken

        I wish. Ive never had anyone write me a poem, no this is my favourite piece of music. Its from the film merry Christmas Mr Laurence, by Ryichi Sakamoto. A beautiful piece of music 🎶. If you haven't heard it. I would recommend you have a listen. The film is fantastic, its about Japanese prisoners in WW2 . 😉
