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.
