If Music Were, But Mere Dreams

If music were but, mere dreams What a bitter sorrowful waste this would be Thus shadows, and to play a note A meager reminder of a world without hope Nexus of the heart blacker than grayer Taste, loveless sapor than savor Flowers wilt and will not, then they wither die Laughter ends forthwith when only moments survive Unmoving, undefining, joyous tears unwept, and never drying Nor celebrations of song and dance relive or reviving Simple songbirds mimic miming melancholy silent Winds untheraputic cease, trees untickled lie dormant That’s why I'm grateful for musical spiritual gifts Through melodies, how Christ inspires and uplifts Yes, if music were but, mere dreams Then all of us sleepwalkers, a soul nonexistent, zombies in another reality
