Music Has a Way

gethealthystayhealthy.com

music has a way

of getting inside us

it enters through our ears

(most commonly)

but it is soon dancing through our veins

toying with our minds

percussing our nerve-endings

pounding and tapping

smacking and shaking

prompting goosebumps

and sometimes tears

or laughter

or both at once

music makes us feel good

feel happy

even when it is making us sad

music has a way

it is a full-body experience

it tingles and it jangles

gets us clapping, tapping, dancing, swaying, floating

singing along, humming

whooping and hollering

and smiling

like it’s the first time our lips

have reached for the sky

music has a way

of turning us around

of lifting our heads

of stopping us in our tracks

it captures our attention

whether it is a single voice

or a solitary instrument

a small ensemble

or a huge orchestra

or a 100-voice choir

we hear, we listen

we feel, we shimmer

from the inside out

with the glorious transcendent gift of music

music has a way

it lures us

and we are its happy captives

stunned by its power

yet serene, surrounded by literal waves of sound

soothing, exhilarating, satisfying

music has a way

sometimes it interrupts

sometimes it is barely there

yet it will resound in our memories

taking us back

immediately

to a long ago place and time

reminding us

visiting us

escorting us

being there for us

music has a way
