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 I hear your words.

Words of hope and loss.
Sing them loud and clear.
Stories of faraway​ places
And times that are long gone.

I close my eyes.
I can still hear your words.
I can see your fingers
Stroking the black and white.

Your words have taken flight.
They reverberate through time.
They have left your lips
To land on mine.

A sweet melody
To soothe my advancing years.
A pretty song

​To wipe away my empty tears.
