In Memoriam

High notes ring softly

In a repetitive rhythm

Encouraging the bass to bellow.

Together they play

In perfect harmony

In perfect cacophony

A welcoming sound

I’ve known for years.

The dependent treble falters…

Then frenzies until it unexpectedly ceases-

An angelic absence

Leaving the bass notes to calmly tremble,

A deep



A familiar song

I’ll never forget.

For my Grandmother,

You’ll always be in our hearts
