From nothing you created the universe; from silence the vibrations of sound; Reverberating through infinity, filling the space abound. You gave my body breath and life and immersed it with energy. Awakening the silence of my soul with the breath of your spirit into me, You tuned my soul's vibration to sound like music to your ears And gave me time to share my music with my loved ones and my peers. Each day I felt your gift of music as expression of your love, It spiritually connected me while on earth to you above. At times, my spirit's songs were sad, but mostly they were fun, I will cherish them forever, though my time here is done. With heartache, but joy of peace, comes time to say good-bye. Until we are together again at the Great Gig in the Sky.
