Soundtrack Of The Mind


Peculiar

Soft, muted
a lullaby
lulling the senses
into peaceful
contemplation

Loud, strident
A demand
to be heard
drowning happiness
in discord

Melodious, joyful
A vision of
sunny days
& bright smiles
celebrating life

Keening, tragic
a lament
mourning travails
inflicted, crushing a
hopeful heart

Underlying them all
a peculiar refrain
uniquely yours
plays from the first breath
silenced only by death
