Notes of Life

Through the years, I’ve known my share of sorrow
had my life shattered by cancer and death
with days, when I couldn’t face tomorrow

and dark endless nights, when feeling bereft
I’ve cried a thousand tears. They fell like rain,
again, and again, until nothing was left

but silent screams, piercing through the pain
deep inside my heart. There were times, I thought
the pain would never end, and griefs refrain

the only tune I’d sing, until I sought 
solace in poetry, music and song
finding the peace and contentment it brought

a refuge. My haven, in a choir’s throng
and time with reflections, paper and pen
was medication needed to grow strong

in order to move forward – live again.
Words and music stayed, when all else was gone
and played a new melody. It was then,
I found a voice, to walk once more in sun.
