With a song, emotions are poised to speak, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

I have been silent
For far too long
As time moved forward leaving me behind
Yet it was courage I sought to find

I knew that courage lived
Within my heart
And the strength of its whispers
Could be heard through my musical art

I am a songwriter
My Secret you have heard
A reflection of me
In every word

With a song
Emotions are poised to speak
Freeing me to discover the joy
My soul seeks
