Valentine warm-up: ‘Sweet Secrets’

Journal note: With Valentine’s Day one week from today, Journal follower Monica Kuster shares her award-winning entry in a lyric-writing contest. Once I’ve resolved the technical bugs, I’ll attach the mp3 recording.

“Sweet Secrets”

As I thank God every single day

For the look upon my face

I’m thankfully thinking about


My Miracle – My Sweet Secret


When I need some help to get thru the day

Just to get through a tough time

I’m always thinking about


My Life’s Love – My Sweet Secret


When I find myself smiling

Feeling good from head to toe

It’s because of my thoughts about


My Soul Mate – My Sweet Secret


As I look on to our future

Of our lives so close together

I’m thinking of Forever with


My Love – My Sweet Secret

About “Sweet Secret”

I’m the secretary for the Boone County Commission and I’ve been living in Columbia since 1982. I was born in St. Louis on St. Patrick’s Day, so when something positive happens, I just know it’s the luck of the Irish!

I am lucky enough to have an amazing and devoted husband, two beautiful and talented children, and two of the smartest Border Collie dogs I have ever come across.

“Sweet Secrets” is just one of hundreds – thousands? – of poems I’ve written since a very young age. It’s a talent I thank God for every night. But “Sweet Secrets” is going places I’d only imagined. The poem won a monthly lyric-writing contest for a music/song production company, Nashville Song Service, which produced a demo for me at no cost. The Tennessee company put my words to music – complete with vocals – and is now shopping “Sweet Secrets” on “music row,” looking for a buyer or just the right performer.

I haven’t hit anything big yet, but we all know it only takes one time ‑ and one good streak of luck to find your pot o’ gold!
