Music, you are With Me

Music, you are with me,
  beside me, holding me.
  in sadness and happiness and struggle,
  in triumph and tragedy.
Blues, bluegrass, Bach,
  Boogie, Bernstein, Beethoven
  Whom do I choose tonight?
To some, Jesus is this close, always.
  But music expects no belief, no faithfulness.
  Just listen to 'Amazing Grace'.
  Music helps us feel
  the joys and sorrows of others.
Like a lover, music
  is affectionate.
  But music is never annoying, even briefly.
Music never makes demands
  of those who just listen.
Some are chosen to be her body servants.
From the chosen, 'all you have to give' she demands.
