For you, life has its own internal music,
One symphony with many variations.
Remember, then, to listen and to hear
The melody, resistant to notation,
Yearning with such grace you can't refuse it.
Emotions are its subtly blended colors,
Intended to be more than you can bear,
Glory draped in pain, delight in fear.
How beautiful! Too delicate to share,
Though bits and pieces may be heard by others.
