The Song Remains

The Song Remains

The food of love it may well be
So much it brings, so much for free
And music has so much to teach
For every heart it soon will reach

No hiding from the sounds which weave
Enjoyment and a chance to believe
For many forms this power can take
To send asleep or keep awake

So listen close and learn some more
The music serves both rich and poor
And when mankind is swept away
The music still may want to play

Enjoy each note and gentle phrase
The need is great for peace these days
And also chaos may be found
No end to what we do with sound

Keep open then to what may play
Don’t dare to cast this gift away
It holds the keys to other planes
The world moves on, the song remains
