The courage in music, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

A song is a collection
Of memories
Both good and bad
Emotional experiences
The songwriter has had

The courage in music
The hearts to reach
The lessons of a song
So much to teach

Pain has a language
All of its own
A life well lived
The proof that you’ve grown

The courage in music
Bravery you share
The overflowing of compassion
That shows you care
