The Lonely Violin

The Lonely Violin

I want so much to leave these things

I want so much to still these strings

I want, so much, a calm within

Please slow your tempo, violin

Your music brings the light of day

I know this, love, it leads the way

The songs you sing are beauty, yes

Yet torment me, as my unrest

I know that I have sworn an oath

And rest I cannot, for us both

Please, I beg that you give in

Release me now, my violin

Such envy courses through my bones

For all I do, I do alone

At times I lose myself, you see

And forget our one goal of “we”

Passion, purpose, they are me

They light the path so I can see

Please play your tune, but play it right

Let calm be your music, tonight
