River of notes (for Heather)

She plays for me
The sweetest holiday memory
Mind drawn back into yesterday
To childhood and beyond.
She plays for me
Rivers of notes dancing
Piano twinkling with her fingers
Weaving magic for my ears.
She plays for me
Sounds of love and hope
Of sisterhood and the magic
I see her in my thoughts
Sweetly serenading universe of song.
She plays for me
Each song moving one into another
And I smile and feel so much
Emotion of happiness captured
On a disc that is part of our world.
She plays for me her song
Of togetherness and life,
Of all things so serene
And of the beautiful woman she has become
In each finger that touches the key
That unlocks the joy
For me.
