I love to watch you play
I love the way your fingers reach and stroke and strum
and each note sweeter than the one before
Sometimes I know the score and sometimes it’s a foreign tune you try
I can’t deny how much
I would love to be the strings that ring and tremble at your touch
I love to hear you sing
I love the things you do with rhythm
with a mellow melody or something bubbly
a word or phrase that stays in memory for days
I wish that I could be the air you pull into your chest with every breath
I’d like to be the words you say
I’d like to be the song you play
