Inner Song

There was a song you always heard. It haunted you alone.

The song you shared with others was  really not your own.

For it was a song of happiness we thought would never end.

It was  a song of smiles and laughter shared with a good friend.

It was a song of hopes and dreams that we all held for you

To us, it was the only song because we never knew.


You sang a very different song that we did not want to hear.

It was a song of  turbulent thoughts of pain, frustration, and fear.

Silently, you bore the weight of all  it had to say.

No matter  how you tried to run, you couldn’t get away.


Now, your inner song has been released to merge with the one we knew.

They form a strange and haunting melody, the truest reflection of you.

This song we hear more quietly, a  whisper on the wind.

It flows from heart to heart among us, the trusted spirit of a friend.

It comes to us in special ways bringing your memory.

It  is your never ending song, the  song of a sol set free.
