Music alone shall live


Music is my friend
when I am lonely
music is the one and only
thing that never ends

Music lives everywhere
can't escape it
can't replace it

Music is my life to me
music is what it is and will always be
Music is your strength
when you are weak
Music is your hope
when you are bleak

Music is made to be played
to fade
to serenade

Music is the gift everyone should give
music alone shall live

    I love it. I have lived out all of the things your poem mentions. And it really represents my idea of 'music'. I used this in my poetry anthology for school because I loved it so much! I credited you for the work of course. (Report) Reply
