The Piano Man Plays

Your heart thinks

Yet I never forget

You feel my heart

can never cry

Alone on my piano

of loneliness

My tears do fall

I play a lullaby of love

Our Love

A love sworn never to die

An old mans fingers

Play on an old mans piano

of memories

Tears from faded eyes

Dimmed to misty blue

I see not keys

I see the girl

within my heart

My mind my fingers

are lost in memories

We danced we loved

Yet always

The piano man played

our songs of love

The brown eyed girl

She wears my ring

Beneath the moon

we sang in dreams

Alas the stars do fade

The moon does close her eyes

The piano man still plays

our song of love

The brown eyed girl

She wears my ring

Times are past

Our love is gone

You may forget

moments in time

When two loves were one

We strolled the moonlit nights

hand in hand

We loved in dreams

and made our plans

Your lips pressed

in earnest haste

against a young boys heart

of passion

Times have passed

Memories remain

Let me sit

at my piano again

and play

an old mans refrain of love

Let my tears flow

on keyboards white

For only in memories

can I see you in my dreams

I see my love tonight

Allow me my memories

A past love

A past life

The mystique of old age

Has woven her spell

on a young boys heart of love

We loved and walked

Loves path of no return

Your ancient heart

Yearned that which mine

Could not return

Now times are gone

like the gentle kiss

of the blessing on our cheeks

by the smooth caress

of night times breeze

Kiss my lips my eyes

for I see no keys

on my old mans memories

 an old mans dreams

awash in tears

Of a bygone love

An old mans heart

Plays a solitary lullaby

on a silent piano

A piano awash in teardrops

of a memory

Of a young love

 The Piano Man Cries

      Hi Sue, thanks for the visit, memory’s are great to hold on to, especially with two great Grandchildren, starting to replay their visits in my mind as soon as they are out the door and gone home, I think they are a little gift to me from my God.
      Best wishes.

          Hi Sue, agree with you 100 percent, difference between us is that my Grand kids make sure that Grandpa is shared around equally, in your case you can go flat out, and spoil yours till the cows come home, without any fighting or jealousy.

            Well yes, except her other Grandpa really spoils her.. I spoil her with one on one time.. Being creative.. I do not splurge and buy her things .. Sometimes I think maybe I may be the meanie Grandma in that respect.. But she has undivided attention that is for sure 🙂
