Meet me in the silence
in the stillness
in the breath

This moment
where I’m open
you of welcome made

Meet me in the melody
familiar tone
coda and twist

Meet me in the lyric
its story fickle
universally made

Meet me in the silence
where music swells
song, breath and being

Meet me in the silence
where you and I
we merge
