Music made Tangible

Life is music made tangible
Art is music for the eyes
Religion is music for the soul
God is the conductor if the galaxies
While humans are simply instruments
In his galaxy filled orchestra.

Sometimes we play sour notes
Sometimes we play beautiful phrases
Sometimes we play triplets
Sometimes in double time
Life is a andante molto legato e crescendo
while your love is presto con fuoco
if only you see me how I see you
in a caprichoso cantabile
in which the legato and stacatto meet
making the most beautiful counterpoint you’ll ever hear
That is my song for you
That is my life for the world
Compose your life as you would do a symphony
And it may be one of God most beautiful symphonies
he has and will orchestrate
you as its author and him as the conductor.
