Lin-Manuel Miranda's sonnet. It's about his wife, Vanessa, and the Orlando tragedy that occurred at a gay club.

By: Lin-Manuel Miranda

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Sonnet (Tony Awards)

by Lin-Manuel Miranda

My wife is the reason anything gets done

She nudges me towards promise by degrees

She is a perfect symphony of one

Our son is her most beautiful reprise.

We chase the melodies that seem to find us until they're finished songs and start to play

When senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised, not one day.

This show is proof that history remembers

We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger

We rise and fall and light from dying embers

Remembrances that hope and love last longer.

And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside

I sing Vanessa's symphony, Eliza tells her story. Now fill the world with music, love, and pride.
