Soul Song

I compose lyrics in my heart,

the rhythm of my thoughts,

the pulse keeping time with my walk,

metered courage, a faith growing

more certain with each chord.

I carry a concerto within; my groaning

the cello, my movements cadenced

by the piano, sometimes a lively step

but there are also notable rests,

all beautiful, my soul’s song in full orchestra,

a harmony of pain and bliss —

for that is the edge of where we live,

the measure between grief and joy;

this passion of life crescendos as we grow 

wise and realize the theme of all of this—

our staff of life — is Love.
