The great requiem touches me
Orchestra and massed choirs
Then a moment of tenderness
The crystal clarity of the boy soprano
Eternal peace.

Then the memories of a tiny gathering
Family and friends
A song in remembrance
Be still my soul.

Further back go my memories
Of love and loss
Promise and regret
Today’s turbulence has passed
I feel at peace.
