Song of Life

written by: Mike Turner



A single note
Can time recall
A silent pause
Tells story, all

Deep rhythm, slow
Sets somber tone
While cello sounds
A low, soft moan

A settling verse
Paints loss and grief
While a rising chorus
Brings on sweet relief

Tuned voices join
Sweet harmony
Whilst a clear, high tenor
Sings what hope can be

All lifetime, lived
Just three minutes long
‘Tis all history’s story
Told in joyous song
