Tonight, I was awakened
In the parlor where I sit
On top of the baby grand,
As the chain at my neck yanked
& I blinked, dazed from the light
That brightened the wallpaper.
I looked around, bewildered
And saw the shadows I cast
Dance ‘cross the willow pattern.
And here they were, two lovers,
Poets, I’d seen before, meet
Like baby’s breath in crystal.
The two sat close, side by side
At the piano bench, bowed,
So still like a whisper, I —
And she graced the keys, singing
To him, of love & heart’s flight
In the dear light from my shade.
How honored, to be privy.
As she turned to him, he smiled
To tell her she inspires.
They noticed the light flicker.
It was me, it was my heart;
What I felt, was almost God.
