A love in verse

The Old Piano

Performed by
David Tuffnell

The tears I’d gladly pay

To hear you play once more!

- I shed them anyway

Each time I listen for

Your fingers on the keys-

The thought can only tease

The rain may fall all day

The sun burn up the blue

The years may fall away

(They’ll lead me nearer you)

But always I’ll recall

Singing down the hall

That perfection of tone

And sometime hesitation

That was your very own

An almost meditation

On the pain and sweetness

When love seals life’s completeness


No Affront

There’s a word which to be blunt

Means love to me – but others hunt

A chaster word to bear the brunt...

Leaves Hold Fast

You see the leaves that fall in autumn – 

Each one’s a dream that’s died

Of love, achievement, each a post mortem...
