Anniversary Song

Standard

For my parents

 

 

Who can name

the sound of rain?

‘Gentle’ or ‘ceaseless’

don’t do it justice.

 

Nameless symphony,

timeless cacophony,

gracing the earth

from the day of its birth.

 

Who can name

the sound of light?

‘Warm’ or ‘bright’

don’t say it right.

 

Nameless symphony,

timeless cacophony,

gracing the earth

from the day of its birth.

 

Who can name

the sound of stone?

‘Unbreakable,’ ‘strong’

say it wrong.

 

Nameless symphony,

timeless cacophony,

gracing the earth

from the day of its birth.

 

Who can name

the sound of love?

‘Beautiful’? ‘Ageless?’

‘Wonderful’? ‘Boundless?’

 

Nameless symphony,

timeless cacophony,

gracing the earth

from the day of its birth.
