Beyond Words and Music

I knew you by the shape
of the air
you left behind
It couldn't hold your essence
Couldn't fit within
the mind

I knew you in the silence
the pause between the notes
Free beyond the music
It rises
and it floats

Words may awe and dazzle
birth thought
to voice and form
but that is not
the way you roll
your spirit, won't conform

Now you are a Blackstar
your colours
struck man blind
but the darkness is so daunting
the reaper, so unkind

From Sula in South Africa
