Sitting, listening, letting the music fill the room
Caressing my ears, letting myself relax as the notes play
The speakers let them gush forth reminding me
Of the times I listened to them before
On the back patio as the leaves fell down
At the desk as I played a game
As I looked at the moon and lost myself
On my friend's kitchen floor as I read
In a hospital room on an uncomfortable chair
In the park as I swerved around a dog and its owner
As I laid still on my bed trying to sleep.
Music filling me silently with
Joy and sorrow, anger and calm
Always there, always waiting
To welcome me, back once more
Into its loving arms.
