“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it a rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” -Author Unknown
I love this quote because it rings so true for me personally. As a writer, I am a lover of words. It is how I communicate best. However, music seems to speak to my heart in a way that words often cannot. It is like a healing salve that can cover and numb the sting and pain. So, occasionally I will share songs that have helped me on my journey through grief. I am going to share one of them with you today.
A very sweet and dear friend shared this with about a year ago. The artist is Karla Adolphe and the album is Honeycomb Tombs. Something else really cool is that you can download it for FREE from her website. The album is “inspired by and devoted to the process of grief”. The entire album is great, but one song that has really spoken to me lately is called “Invisible Lines”. It poetically expresses what I so often feel. The lyrics are as follows:
Our misery started today but our roads did not go the same way
Yours to the left mine to the right
Our misery started today
Our hearts broke at the same time torn along invisible lines
Mine was still beating yours said goodnight
Our hearts broke at the same time
You are like the shoreline
Constant but fading at the same time
You are like the sky above
You cover me, cover me
Our wells are empty and dry poured out and measured for life
Yours from the inside mine from my eyes
Our wells are empty and dry

I won’t elaborate on the lyrics or how they have ministered to my heart. Our wounds may be different and need doctoring in different ways. So, I simply share them and will allow them to speak to you in a way that you may need.

Amen on what you say about music… And those lyrics… <3
I always say music expresses what the heart can’t explain. Because there is always a song that describes how we feel but can’t put into words.
