A Sweet Melody

It’s soothing

Every time I listen to it

The sweet melody that comes out of the music box

And even when I close my eyes

I can still see it

The day you gave it to me

A present you said

And I know it wasn’t for my birthday

But I couldn’t ask

You wouldn’t tell me

Until today I don’t know the reason

Yet I’m okay with that

Because while I have this

While this memory lingers

I can still hold on to you
