Notes on the page A memory of her A melody starts to sing Longing for her arms Chords form a harmonic response Thoughts of her smile plays on this heart A chorus rises to tell Her eyes pierce the dark of his soul Her memory wrapped around his songs Her memory bound to notes written, played Longing for this song to end To find another and begin once again
