The Piano Man Plays

03 Jun

The Piano Man Plays

Your heart has died

Yet mine never forgets

You feel my heart

And make it 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 songs

can I see you 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

only an 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 Plays

The Piano man Cries

      Thanks Sheila , glad you enjoyed that clip
      Tried to learn the piano as a kid but was as useless as tits on a bull
      so gave it up for singing in the shower
      Cheers

        My Dad was a good piano player , but he never had the time to teach me a few keys. It’s harder than it looks Ian, so I know what you mean.

          Good morning Sheila, hope you are well, I tried to learn the piano too but it got too frustrating
          Still enjoy piano music though, wishing you a great day
