Sing me a song.
Write me a melody.
Of times gone by
And moments lost in time.
Stroke the keys.
Massage the ivories.
Raise your voice high
Until all can hear your words.
Words of hope and loss.
Sing them loud and clear.
Stories of far away places
And times long gone.
I close my eyes.
I can still hear your words.
I can see your fingers
Stroking the keys so softly.
The words have taken flight.
They reverberate through time.
They have left your lips
To land in my heart.
A sweet melody
To soothe my advancing years.
A pretty song
To fill my empty heart.

    Here’s a song which came out in my younger days, which I feel is a perfect response to your post:

      I haven’t heard that song in so many years. It reminded me of my youth and a love long gone. He sang of being older and remembering. It must have lodged itself in my heart and mind. Thank you for sharing it with me.

      Thank you. I should write more at 2:00 in the morning. I found a picture and just wrote what I felt in my heart. It just came out of me. I wish all my writing was so easy. I’m so happy you enjoyed it.
