Listening to Delilah

Afterglow on a warm summer evening
Driving home after a hard day’s work
The radio’s on; love songs filled the air
Sweet melodies, in him, they lit a spark
Several callers told their stories
That extolled the power of romance,
Of self-sacrifice and undying love;
From those unafraid to take a chance!
A long-time sweetheart awaits at home
Making his dinner while he travels–
Maybe it’s time to take a leap of faith,
Let doves go; and ring the wedding bells!
It’s been quite a long time coming
They’ve been together, it seems like ages
It’s time to unravel a new chapter
In their book; or simply turn the pages!
As he listens to Delilah give love advice
And then play the requested love songs
A rush of warm feelings engulfs him, and
He knows surely on whose arms he belongs!

A few years ago, I used to listen to her on my way home from work. I like the music she played. Soothing and prevents road-rage. LOL
