Stop, all music stop
my soul can't
fathom your soul -
so deep, so dark, so cold
I wept when you said
Stop, do not sing
Stop, do not cry
Stop, begone.

Your name is a song
of a flowing river
and that of a pigeon
that cooes every morning
like a chime of bell from a belfry
singing, dancing with the air
giving life to my soul.

I stopped listening to your song
I stopped singing a song
when you said -
Stop, die, begone!
