Life is a symphony

Life is a symphony
a cacophony of thunderous will
a voice spun in praise
a sigh from the height of heaven
a bellow from the deep
Life is a symphony we must keep

Life is a symphony we must keep
playingLife is a symphony
every piece essential
ever note, line, and bar
every cymbal, tenor, and key
every string strung on the measure of who
we are …
Life is a symphony we must keep
Life is a symphony we must keep
playinguntil we can play no more

so when world wanders into unfamiliar sounds
when realm of understanding shivers with
unwelcome tone
when it rackets, rakes, and rages,

we must keep our fingers moving
our head swaying
our feet dancing
we must lift our voices
we must sing, play, and rejoice
we must be the orchestra
that brings

life…

and play
until we can play no more

because
Life is a symphony we must keep
Life is a symphony we must keep
