Redeemed By Mahler
The dark heart hides its grief
unknown to the many who surround it.
Tears pierce the crowning veil of sorrow
and summon the most vulnerable part,
the tenderest part of the soul
made manifest in the love of this composer.
Spirits of grief now released heaven-bound
through the beauty of line, the precision of timbre,
the sonorous voice of the soul.
Again, I am with you and
again, I am redeemed.
