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.
