The Missing Sound

“What has keys but can’t listen to the beauty it unlocks? A piano” – Jarod Kintz

The old piano lay soundless, covered and almost forgotten. I had hated the sight of it after Geoff’s passing, but I could not bear to part with it either. Sometimes as I sat in our little sunroom, I could imagine his fingers dancing merrily along the keys and the soft tune would escape the walls, drifting out to that sunroom entrancing me. It had been his thing. Tinkering away. Capturing his anger or his joy, in simple melodic tunes. I missed those moments. I missed those rhythms. Mostly, I missed Geoff.

  1. Music and musical instruments in particular, seem to tie us with strong memories to the player or a certain person a song reminds us off. I think you show that connection deeply.
