Hymns for the Hopeful

If you listen closely,

you will discover the lyrics which

do not take the form of words.

For in music, there is a

sacredness that occurs

in nature, not in the confines

of four walls and a roof.

I have experienced

these moments

where the slightest breeze

or the cascading of the sun’s rays

have sung their hymn

of comfort to me.

And most of all,

I have felt growing warmth

in my soul from

a simple embrace

or a loving gaze.

These are the songs

that fill me with hope,

the songs which

speak without words.
