The Song

You couldn’t carry a tune

in a bucket, as they say,

but you insisted

on singing “Joy to the World”

by Three Dog Night

as loud as you could

every time we were in the car.

But we were kids

and thought it was fun.

That’s all that mattered then.

Now, despite your lack

of musical talent

I would give anything

to ride in the car with you

singing that song

at the top of your lungs

and I would sing it

with you

because I would know

that true joy

is having the people

I love

by my side

no matter what…
