Without Music


Not a breath in the wind
Not a sigh in the air
Not a note in the sky
Filling the world with light

Not a bird making song
Not a tune to be heard
Not a sound to be made
Breaking this awful silence

Taken for granted
Forgotten, underestimated
Music fills our lives with color
Shaping our goals, our endeavors

What is life without music?
Silence without the night
Gloom without the day
Paintings without the color

Oceans without the waves
Wind without the breeze
People without the voices
Love without the meaning

What is life without music?
Silence without the peace
Words without the page
Food without the taste

Don’t ever forget it
But choose to remember it
Choose to embrace it
And choose to savor it

For one day it may be gone
Left behind by us all
Leaving us desolate and shaken
Colorless, without haven

What IS life with music?
Silence filled with love
Water filled with sound
Books filled with meaning

People filled with hope
Lives filled with peace
Families filled with music
Angels filled with song

Don’t ever forget it
But choose to remember it
Choose to embrace it
And choose to savor it.
