Beep….Beep….Beep….Beep
Laying on my deathbed
I listen to the sound of my existence
…on the life support machine

Beep…Beep…Beep
Hanging by a thread
You played an acoustic chord
You strummed it and it birthed life
Melodically resurrecting my soul
Your rythm breathed into my shattered being

Beep..Beep
And your beat pumped my heart
Lyrically feeling the unseen
Your words articulated my voiceless plea
Your auditory comfort persisted
…even in my dismissal

Beep.
You drummed through my arterial course
Your mere essence sustained a pulse

So I give it back to you
…the best of what you redeemed

Music,
I thank you
