Sheet Music



~~~

My tears wrote a love song

On the letter you left behind

How can there be such pain

In these words, written so kind

~~~

Neatly penned small paragraphs

Capture the rhythm of my tears

And note a haunted minor melody

As the ink in tragic lines smears

~~~

A funeral dirge to love now past

Fashioned upon your final clef

And this ghosted score of romance

Now, the only thing I have left

~~~

I have heard it now, for so long

I know all the words by heart

I can see the pain that’s coming

Before the music even starts

~~~

With time, my hope, it will fade

As all the saddest songs do

And in the quiet there made

I will finally hear something new

~~~
