You Are My Music

Music
finds me 
and 
encourages me
in dark places
lifts me 
up
comforts
mourns
or exhilarates 
with me
in high places
in low

but
without You
music 
is empty


With You
flowing through
filling
lifting
breathing
sighing
Music..

You
are my music
You
are the song I sing
when I sing
of 
the color of the sky
or
flowers

strong
fragile
temptations
triumphs
death
and life

It's always
You

the heartbeat
the rhythm
inspiring 
driving
breathing life
and dying

It is You
in the music
that brings joy to my heart
makes
the pain of the song
bearable
beautiful
You
redeem
every note
every pulse
every sudden expectant silence

rising and falling
steady and constant
crescendo 
and fading

surrounding 
filling
all I do
(my background music is You)

filling me
making my life
all life
music

You.
