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 thatโ€™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

~~~

  2. Beautiful structure, the perfect words, the rhythm precise, all together make for a work of art!

      Thank you, my friend. It is you who has helped me to see that every piece of arts reflects all other art. Every painting is a song. Every song is a verse. Every poem is a picture. Every lyric a painting.

      • Most certainly that they are my friend but poetry is…or should be…found to be the backbone of all the arts. You’re very welcome and all the best!

    Poignant piece. My favorite lines were,
    “I can see the pain that’s coming
    Before the music even starts.”
