The Music Within Me



The music within me plays on and on

This song in my heart whispers its magic melody

Guiding me on to my quest for truth

Linking me to each timeless memory


I sing to open the gates of freedom

Guiding me to my own front door

Beyond the cadence life goes on

An unfinished life


Petals in the wind

A custodian for the future

Keeping my dreams afloat

Prismatic colors invade empty measures


A piano sits waiting

Ten small fingers restoring it's soul

The music within me claims my passion

6/8 time explores rhythm sublime


A dazzling reverie lingers across my mind

escorting feelings lost sensations

A banquet of genuine gratuity

Magnificence honored to validate the movement of the moment.


Destiny lures me over the bridge

I'll go my own way

I'll write my own song

You are my musical theme...and the music plays on.



Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.

-Ludwig van Beethoven

Reminded me of Michael Jackson's song, where the lyric goes like..."Only know wherever I go, we're as close as two friends can be"--and he's of course referring to music. (Music & Me, MJ, 1973)

Delightful and always inspirational.

Love from the sky~
