Air upon air and sound upon sound
As music floats and swirls around
Sorrow upon sorrow and tears upon tears
As the music sinks in from external spheres
Notes upon notes and music upon music
As enchantment loosens the fibers of rhetoric
Motion upon motion and eye upon eye
As batons fly through the air with a sigh
Horns upon horns and strings upon strings
As rhythms thunder and the lady sings
Story upon story and theme upon theme
As music comes to life and reigns supreme
Coming to an end as everything must,
In life, in love, in music we trust,
The final note and the final breath,
But something else outside of death.
An encounter with the Almighty,
An encounter with heaven’s language,
And a lasting resonance in our soul.
