A woman, a violin and an Eternal Oath

So regal, yet all alone in a field of wild grass
Trying to move ahead as her downcast gaze fades behind her
The road is long but beautiful
She knows not where she is headed
Carrying only violin and bow
It is the music that connects her body to Soul

She arrives at the crossroads
so she begins to play
and sway
and sway
That’s when the smile found its way
At one with the universe, she felt so alive
Perched on a small mound of earth high above a tunneled ditch
She will not fall for the music keeps her grounded
She lifts her eyes looking ahead
How high she stands with the vast ocean before her
Her smile grows
Nothing can destroy her while her music plays.

As the song nears the end she realizes
It is she who makes the music
Not just with violin and bow but with her every move
The song has ended but the music plays on
She turns back to look behind once again
but this time with a smile
Her heart begins to sing
“I am and I will continue to be the music that will forever play
for my soul will never go away”
She understands now what it all means
Vehi sheamda is the secret our enemies never heard
Our eternal promise, God’s word
