Singing the blues with the deep words of our inner emotions. I must try to generate a mixture of emotions with the simplicity of a few good chosen words.


The music is crying
For the emotions are flying with the winds
Like a bagpipe at a fireman funeral
Or a trumpets last call to the spirit departed

Yet the musicís tears sing along
With the chimes of the tree limbs
Soaring with the flight of the eagle
In lonely tones for spirits to call
The cries rustle the winds
In the deepest of all feelings

The angelic chorus weeps in silent appreciation
In the gentle mists of waterfalls
For the moment has been claimed
For the heart to feel so deep
That it loses time ever so briefly

But the music follows the valleys
Covering all who hear
In the silence of deep breathes
And into the arms of comfort some will join
To listen to the music crying over us

In the ending trace if flows on it way
To claiming another one who cares to listen
To hear the music talking
To hear there inner soul burst
With the music crying inside them
