Creative Challenge #253 ~ Instrument

The Instrument

 The Instrument

There once was a time
So long ago
When from this Guitar
Sweet music would flow

A beautiful  Instrument
So slick in my hand
It held dreams of wonder
For me and the band

Fingers would drift 
across golden string
The music it made 
would make the heart sing

It carried me far 
across many lands
Making sweet Music,
 just me and the band

Time goes so fast 
As does come age
All memories now
The turn of the page

Fingers now stiff
They won't pay a bar
But they still feel the beauty
Of this old Guitar

The memories it conjurers
They carry me far
To a  time when you loved me
and this old Guitar

But time carried you away
ripped from my hand
and with you the music 
that flowed from my hand

Now there are just memories
Many stories at hand
We sit and we tell them 
Me and the band

On the porch at sunset
A beer in our hand
We trade those old stories 
Me and the band

The day will come soon
I will be back at your side
once more I will make music 
For my beautiful Bride
