The Song of My Heart

From whence does the rhythm come?
From whence does the tune arise?
From whither shall it fall?
And who shall answer its beckoning call?

Shall it glide in the growing twilight?
Shall it waltz in the rising light?
Shall it pass through shadow fair?
Or shall it be left in memories care?

Will it once more dance with the body?
Will it once again teach the mind?
Shall it never again caress the heart?
When will it cease to break apart?

Is it a memory of the past?
Is it a call to the future?
Will it continue its prayerful song?
Or is the magic truly gone?

When shall the trumpets resound?
When shall the drums beat?
When shall love grace the strings?
When shall the words begin to sing?

When will grace carry sorrow?
When will mercy overtake horror?
When will melody ease grief?
Why can't I attain this wholesome relief?

When shall it again dawn with morning?
When shall the moon recover her memory?
When shall the babe dream in time with the score?
Why can't I acquire this knowledge evermore?

Why has it left?
From whence did it go?
Oh why did it retire?
And take with it, my desire?

Why will it not return?
Why has it grieved my heart sore?
From what reason has it passed the everlasting portal?
Why has it emptied eternity, in this wandering mortal?

From whence does the rhythm come?
From whence does the tune arise?
From whither shall it fall?
And who shall answer its beckoning call?

Will it once more dance with my body?
Will it once again enter my mind?
Shall it never again acknowledge my soul?
Shall mortal and immortal never again be whole?

Where is the harmony to accompany my melody?
Why has the rhythm fallen away from the waltz?
Where is the conductor to guide the dance of the score to start?
And who shall sing the words, for the song of my heart?
This is a poem I wrote a while back when I was feeling particularly depressed. Each line is a question of it's own accord that can stand alone, but together they lead up to the final question. Each line has something to do with music, which is a huge hint at what the poem is about.

It wasn't a compliment. It's simply the truth.
