SING ME A SONG








SING ME A SONG
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.
