Never Really Alone


Something about a song
That fills the empty room
To fascinate
And entertain
As good as any show.

Walking or working
Singing a song
Makes the day go fast
And it doesn't matter who hears
Because it equalizes the doom
And things just shine.

There's a bird in a tree
Or the wind at your back
And suddenly
You know you have company
And the day is full of sunshine.

If you're very still
You can feel the beat
And hear the tune
And suddenly
You've created your own
And everything is happy
And you get a skip in your step
Like a master of the elements.

Sometimes when the moon is full
And the wind is warm
And the grass is so sweet
The music stops
So that the moment is pure and still
And nothing comes between you
And the light.
