Only music

The saxophonist played
Into the night
Always hidden
By the darkness
Of the arch
The homeless man slept
On a bench
In the tired old park
I wish i could be a musician.
Then I will,
If I don’t die first,
I can play all the night
In the wind
Under the arch
So that the homeless man
Can smile
Sleeping under
A drunk sky
Don't worry about your Life.
For only music
Always remains with us

What a beautiful thing that would be. If only it were possible.
Thank you for sharing this heartfelt poem.

One of the most powerful God-given gifts we have here upon this entire Earth. You ironically, already are, a musician within.......strictly with words. Beautiful.

Hi, salamuna,
Whether ...hidden
By the darkness
Of the arch

or out in the open, may we all learn to create music that brings smiles ...under A drunk sky... Love the idea of being drunk on music. Thank you for sharing.
