As sweet melody
Wanders along the strings
Creating dreams in a single note
Which float in between this world and the next

 Some sounding like joy
Others like pain
Sorrows and the blues
The seasons and forgotten words

Dancing like watercolour and light
Strumming forgotten places
Long lost faces
Times which come alive
With each hanging chord

 Echoes which sing
Whispering fingers touch the strings
A quick embrace
Then the next note is shadowed
Across gentle fingertips

Singing against your soul
Secrets touched against your heart
Like laughter chasing major to minor
In a dance only your spirit knows
No one else can follow
But your fingers trace the wisdom of time
