Psalm 18

May we never forget to sing

As words empty themselves

Slipping into silence

Between vocal chords - 

Parched

 

May we never forget to sing

With a cadence that rises

Un-crushing words of love

From muted spaces

 

Where light dissolves

And air folds

And water breathes

And silence shifts

Into song

 

Our faithful offering

Against pandemic fear

 

May we never forget to sing
