Music, Play On

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Let me die,

with sweet music in my soul,

a melody that transforms,

leaves reality behind,

and uplifts the heart,

to be immersed in love,

the exhilaration of beauty,

and the ecstasy of human experience.


Music is to the soul,

as love is to the heart,

seductive, enlightening,

and exquisite in its beauty,

sending thoughts to heaven,

bodies to serene calm,

and minds to peaceful rest,

overwhelmed by the grace of life.


Music is the great isolate r,

that separates the mundane from possibility,

imperfection from purity,

and focuses the creative,

leaving the doubts and pain of life,

and delivering the soul,

to heights unrealized,

giving hope where strife resides.


What music does,

is raise our consciousness,

take away gnawing troubles,

delivering experience

into realms of unfathomable bliss,

single-minded,

elevating our hearts,

into the beauty of pure experience.


Music, play on...


Music is our soul in expression, and it connects us all, delivers us into the light of beauty and the potential of human life.

Glad you enjoyed it Audrey. I was a professional musician for many years and owned commercial recording studios. Music has always a part of my life and I can't imagine life without it. It is in deed uplifting and take us to places emotionally that we couldn't have achieved without it.

This is such a beautiful write--music is intensely personal to me and it is how I make my living--and interestingly, I find it difficult to write about--so this was wonderful to read

Thank you so much for your kind words Jaye. Music, no matter the genre, can change a life, uplift hearts to such heights. It can take us far from the troubles of earthly life and give us so much comfort and motivation.

Thanks for dropping by Jaye.

What a beauteous and meaningful poem, Tony! It spoke so strongly to me that I'll bookmark it to read again...and again.

I'm glad your first photo featured the keyboard, as that is the instrument I play (both piano and electronic keyboard). I love listening to the others, all types of instruments, unplugged or electronic, a single instrument, a combo or a full orchestra.

Music is indeed divine and elevates our hearts to bliss.

Voted Up, Awesome and Beautiful/Shared

Jaye
