The Power of Music

To bring so close together,
And to move so far to tears.
To lift souls to the heavens,
And to remind of how little we’ve lived throughout the years.

A thousand stories told without a word between breaths,
And sounds seen behind closed lids.
To see a face uplifted in awe,
And to hear stolen breaths leave parted lips.

Feeling joys beyond describing,
And hearts so full to bursting.
Enamoured by words and none alike,
Full of twists and turns surprising.

The ups and downs and soaring in between,
The tears unshed in twinkling eyes.
The justice done for stories needing to be told,
And that is why I play music.
