The music floated into the air

It caught my ears while I was unaware

The soft notes of the music played

A resting calm upon my mind

The lingering notes echoed frail and tender

The longing to escape with deep surrender

The rippling cooling tidal waves

Tumbled together embracing the notes

I stood in silence forgetting the Time

The Time to fold up and resign

Myself to duties shared and drown

The echoing rustling music tunes

That woke me up from my lonesome dreams

  1. It’s a beautiful poem. Music brings solace to the aching, lonely, depressed heart & this your poem shows very well. Music carries you away to another world drowning you in its own sweetness.
