Ode To Music


Oh, beautiful music

Your lyrics are the story of my life;




The list for you goes on and on

How that melody drifts fully around me

Like the wind blowing in the distance

With your captivating sound

And gravitational pull,

You embrace me in your arms

And like a mother comforts child,

You comfort me with words

How many parts you do play;




The list for you goes on and on

Music, you are my counselor

You give me the guidance to get through

Road blocks and stumbles

Although you speak to me,

The world and its people don't always hear 

The messages you send out

Your words pulse through me

Starting at my toes, 

Then vibrates to my head

How many moods you play;




The list for you goes on and on

Like a memory that keeps surfacing,

You never leave my mind

You help me think thoughts

I've never thought before

And place exciting ideas 

Inside my boring head

With you I see the world 

In deep and complex ways

That not a lot of people can these days

Music, you are my only hope

When God seems far, and I'm alone
