The melancholy notes of the organ
Pierce the world in a heartbeat of tears.
Over it, the words portray a
Dazed numbness and fragile survival,
More will than recovery,
Less living than existing.
The build of notes overwhelms empathy,
Filling then overflowing it,
Until the listener is gifted with a
Peace the author doesn’t have to give
Both blessing and bittersweet:
