The silence, like new fallen snow,
Brings quite all around,
For I cannot hear the music
Deep within my soul.
Emptiness encloses me and pain is all I feel,
I am lost in time and timelessness
And sadness takes me it’s toll,
For I cannot hear the music, deep down within my soul.
And then tonight, through tear filled eyes,
I danced as once before,
I saw your face and heard your words
And I can hear the music now, deep within my soul.
For I was reminded quietly,
Of words you spoke so soft,
Before the angels came for thee,
And then the music stopped.
And, at last, my heart did know
And comfort I did fee,
For I snuffed the touch, as it was right,
And I walked alone into the night.
Until the time I am set free,
No more my heart will weep,
But do as you did bid to me,
……..and I will dance for thee……..
