Lyrics composed by
John Henderson on the 13th of March, 2008,
to Oley Speaks' 1914 music for the song, 'Sylvia'.
Music can be comforting
To old folks of troubled mind;
Soothing tunes can us unbind
From the miseries thoughts bring.
Memories of loved ones gone
Are a burden we must bear,
But may not song voices clear
Oft revive our resolve to soldier on?
Music's sounds may strike the chords,
Speech can't do in words.
