Melody

Melody

Though I live
in the shadow
of your light
my flesh does not
grow dim

The days grind
down the hours
but in your life
there are roses
gladioli and orchids

and winter holds
no mystery
and music sustains
your breath
each noted syllable
a joy

my song has many voices
my voice many songs
but all that issues
from my lips
is love
