Sing On

We have heard it said before
That the soul beats on 
Long after the heart has tired in its mortal labor

Where will our songs go
After the grave has subdued its cries?

Angered, silent ghosts will drop a glass
And never hear it's shatter...
How much more to them than broken glass,
Will you matter?

Remember this before your first exit:

There will always be those that will hear the music,
Beyond your days of breath
Only special ears in tuned with the earth,
And its universe he and she will see in all its shamelessness

Sing on!
Sing on to those you know will hear
Let never your soul be mute
Long after those special ears, tongue, flesh, and eyes
Close to rot

WoW! Laura, I've noticed your talent from afar and you are truly a gifted poetess. Sometimes after reading you I am left speechless. I will try to leave a comment worthy of your gift. Let's see it was deep, and thought provoking. I liked title ( because I love to sing) and message. It was well executed:-) Alexis
