heart beats

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

my heart beats to the rhythm of our favorite song.
i let the music take my mind where it needs to go.
the comfort i feel as i sway my hips
reminds me of love long lost.
the passion in the sound waves
brings me back to a different time
when you were by my side and i thought
that moment - and you - could never die.
you're no longer here, but the music remains.
all i can do is hold you in my thoughts,
and touch the words on this page.

[for you, dad.]

    Aww… so sweet. Music does have the power to transport us to times gone, times to comes and tie that could’ve have been or should have been.

    1. so true, it’s one of those things that stays with us long after the memory happened, and almost extends the lifetime of the memory itself…

        That it does. That it does. Nothing can divorce me from the beautiful experience that is music.
