I wrote this after finding inspiration at work with the Degas Dancer Sculptures.

She only hears the music
The Sound is all she sees
And though I pay to watch her
She does not notice me

The way she moves; she sings her song
But sadness taints the words
She weeps alone amongst the trees
And listens to the birds

I watched her then, I watch her still
She would not hear my call
I sang with joy when she did well
And cried when she did fall.

Follow your heart, hear its words
To her this I would urge
She did not hear, she was not saved
So now I speak this dirge

Here lies my love, unknown to me
And from my heart she ran
I did not have her like I should
So now dear, no one can.
