On Being A Musician

wijmembercds2015On Being A Musician

To be a musician means that you make, create music

You make the sound of music play on instruments and

Write the lyrics that come out of the mouths of singers

You are the music, the rhythm, the rhyme

You’re the song, the sonata, the cliché that lifts lovers up to their souls

And mates them with the apple of their eye

It’s your choice, your charge, your habit, your determination

You become the instrument of melody, of music, of song
