Songís End

Every heart beating
Keeps time to a song
A story to tell
Set to itís own music.
If only we will listen
There is so much to hear:
It begins with birth
And its glorious innocence
A song of discovery of
So many wondrous things
A song that tells of dreams
While still crawling to a walk.
(The song may lack maturity
At this stage
But it makes up for that
With sheer volume).
From there the songs change
In tempo and quality
Some become chaotic
While some define peace
Some send out cries for help
While others contain hope
Some sing songs of wisdom
But some of morbid destruction.
Throughout this world
There are many songs
Simultaneously playing
So many in fact,
That it is hard
To hear each song.
But there is One
Who was listening
Even at songís end
Oh God how I wonder
About each song
That one who was so young
Whose song of innocence
Or those older that sang
Of love and wisdom
Was ended so quickly
Because of the music
Of selfish ambition
Silencing anotherís beat
Here on earth forever.
My God why oh why
Would someone choose
Such a horrible sound
And make it their own?
Oh Lord you give us:
The beat,
The passion,
The instruments,
And such awesome direction
Why donít we all just follow
Your loving lead,
Making heavenly music together?
And allow our songs
To gently fade into the twilight
That befalls us all
Leading into the new dawn
Lord, as I continue to sing
The song of this heart
I must move to make
Your music mine
Delighting in your lyrics
From this moment.
Help me oh Lord
To hear others songs
And let the beat
Of my heart be yours
For dear Jesus
None of us know
What time today
There will be
Songís end.

There are some very lovely thoughts expressed here. For me, the very short lines and lack of punctuation made for a choppy read (and watch out for it's / its). I love the idea of the Lord giving us the beat, the passion, and the instruments.
