Piano

Location

 
 
Sometimes I wish my you were a piano
 
So I could understand every chord and melody. 
 
Though you are a memory.
 
As my mahogany instrument.
 
I want to lose myself in the flow of your voice,
 
As beautiful and as gentle as my favorite piece.
 
A piece played in A Minor. 
 
Smooth and gentle like your tough.
 
I want to know your sounds,
 
And how you work,
 
And what makes you sing.
 
I wish you were a piano,
 
I would be with you for hours,
 
Fix the mistakes,
 
The off-key sounds,
 
The ripped sheet music. 
 
Painstaking practice 
 
Could lead me to that one lovely melody,
 
Each note falls into place.
 
I want to memorize 
 
Your majors and minors, 
 
Your flats and sharps. 
 
Every note. 
 
I want to remember.
 
I wish you were a piano.
