The Music of Heaven

Tom's mom loved her piano,
whether she was playing it herself
or listening to someone else.
But the sweet sound that she so enjoyed
fades to mere noise
compared to the pure, rich melodies she's hearing
in Heaven --
the wrap-around echo of angels
singing, Holy! Holy! Holy!,
the resonance of earth's redeemed
singing the Hallelujah Chorus
in dozens of languages.
Perhaps she has come across
a bluegrass worship team, just fiddlin' around,
or maybe she's joining an African group,
dressed in their finery,
as they sing and dance before the throne of God.
She has all eternity to take in Heaven's music.
I can only imagine!
