Listen with your heart to the strength of a song’s whispers, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

A song reveals a story
This is what I know
If you listen with your heart
It will tell you so

For there is strength in a song’s whispers
To leap from a writer’s page
Your ears will hear
While your soul will engage

I listen with my heart to the strength of a song’s whispers
Even in my despair
The music does comfort
It wraps me in care

How can we ever thank the songwriter
Who shares her pain
To give us the music
A hopeful refrain
