Christopher's Sonnet

A song plays in my ear singing sweet notes

His lips part releasing a soft sweet hum

Callused hands strum chords which appear to float

And my heart harmonizes along with them

 

The song he plays causes my soul to sing

As though my heart were his own metronome

I sigh, the notes melting in summer heat

Ringing as if they were a telephone

 

Then my eyelids flutter ajar sadly

I remember that he is not with me

The music fades away, I sigh loudly,

Beside me is only my mug of tea

 

And oh, my goodness, how I do miss him

But tomorrow’s light will bring him again

 

A song plays in my ear singing sweet notes

Lovingly played just a little bit

Callused hands play chords which appear to float

And my heart sings loudly along with it

 

The song he plays causes my heart to beat

As though my heart were his own metronome

I sigh, the notes melting in summer heat

Ringing as if they were a telephone

 

Then my eyes flutter ajar sadly

I remember that he is not with me

The music fades away I sigh loudly

Beside me is only my mug of tea

 

And oh my goodness how I do miss him

But tomorrow’s light will bring him again

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
