So Far Away, yet We Are Near

Music: Prelude in B-flat minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques

So far away, yet we are near
In the intricate routes through which our thoughts flow,
Xeroxed journeys, more rhythmic than dreams,
That explode into melodies sung long ago.
Extraordinary embrace! It seems
Each parent and child is given to know
Notes no one else will hear.
