Sing Me A Song by Eric Gichira

Sing me, sing me a song

That reminds me where I belong;

A song that soothes my heart

With timeless beauty of art


Sing me a song of inspiration

That leads me to conviction;

That blows my mind away

Just like the wind in May


Sing me a song that instructs

And not a song that distracts;

Sweeter than the sweetest text

And keeps me guessing what’s next…


Won’t you, won’t you sing me a song?
