A short poem that talks of the centrality of music in our lives
A SONG OF TIME



Come to me now for the time is right

After such years of change and pain

Failure gathered in the corners of my mind.

But now your beauty resonates in my ever searching soul

That hides in worlds beyond the boundaries of time.

I shall no longer fear a merciless discord

But must seek my rhythms once again

For God's voice sings faintly on a distant breeze

In a song that does not change itself.

Music holds the message of the final mystery;

The eternity from which all being comes.

Our human songs have always changed themselves

They counterpoint the melodies that rule our lives.

Even dim and dusty harmonies,

Contain all the wisdom we can ever need.

They give me the liberty to be

Or not to be, if that is my question.
