Light falls gently on my face
it reaches into my heart
and I find courage again.
Somehow I will the words
the lyrics and melody
and the stories that weave their way
through the spotlight.
I am surprised
so unexpected
almost unreal.
The notes
will rise and fall,
familiar notes
notes that are full
of memories,
highs and lows
light and darkness
So my heart shall sing
and my voice will be heard
for the first time in a long time.
