A SONG’S SECRETS

musicians bw

Listen to my song
and you will know my soul.
In each trill, in each note
hide my deepest sentiments.
Each word strips
the mask I wear
revealing more than I should
if you listen
only if you listen.
Ride the waves of the melody
soaring
dipping
mellowing
to live my silent prayers.
