When light no longer shines
and the days all run together,
I find solace in my music…
shelter during stormy weather.
It invites me to its love
pouring out a grieving heart…
Music promises to love me back –
let me feel what it imparts.
A safe and caring place,
that doesn’t fault me my mistakes,
it beckons me to enter in
to let my soul awake.
It knows intent and feels my pain,
and so it lets me in
to comfort me and strengthen me
and make me whole again.
