The piano sits idle in the living room A grand organ's beautiful notes are hushed No music resounds from the fine keyboard And the songbooks are gathering dust Two voices no longer blend in harmony As they did in those bygone days For one has departed and the other stands mute But the music in her mind replays Silence where there once was joy Grief where love once abounded A heart that is lost somewhere in time With only memories now surrounded Sweet echoes from a distant past Beckons her to seek contentment But finds a soul that is brimming tears And a heart filled with resentment A body fatigued, a mind needing peace At day's end as twilight is falling Yet somewhere in the silent mist The lost love is softly calling Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 27, 2007 All Rights Reserved
