Musical lament

Echoes of a sad lament

Played upon a clarinet

Creating images of strangers on a shore

Images of days of ancient yore.

As I hear the haunting melody

It’s echoes resonate in me

Each note seems to echo life

The refrain brings tears to my eyes

And as the tune floats and glides along

Like a spiritual rhythm

I feel the solitude, the bliss

I feel the touch of a farewell kiss

And as the clarinets lament haunts my mind

I get lost in space and time

And I give thanks that I am alive

As the tune echoes universal rhyme

And I know creation causes my energy to thrive

As I look towards the light

This music will always haunt my life.
