Musical Character

Work Text:

Every sound echoed in the air
Reaches the ears
And slides into the mind
Like ink slightly smeared
On the lined music sheets.

Each step taken
Heading to the golden horizon
Or falling down onto the cobbled streets
Is another minute closer
To the dazzling wheat field.

When paths cross
And voices intermingle
Chiming along to their own beat
Did you know
Music can be made?

Many years passed
Each with experiences long etched
Into our soul and memory.

Yet when I met you,
The music sheets became filled
With the notes of my love for you
And my footsteps
Became surer and rhythmic.

Your character
Stands out like the first opera.
But unlike Dafne,
Our song shall echo
Across the horizon
To where maybe people far from our sight
May know us
