Melodies and long forgotten tunes
dance through the vast regions of my mind.
A single line of a single song is chosen to be replayed
a thousand times until something else comes along.
I hum the notes to a joyous rhythm for I have forgotten the words.
The words are gone, yet the importance of the tune
touches my soul and lifts my heart as hum the simple strain.
The joy I feel may in fact be sorrow from a different point of view.
Each assemblage of verse that is set to song has a
diverse significance for each individual on Earth.
