As I gently hold your rounded body
close to my chest you see through me to read 
the tablature in my heart and feel the beat
emanating from it;

involuntarily I shut my eyes 
to braille read you with my calloused left hand finger tips 
as it moves up and down the fret board
caressing your long giraffe neck; 

I sit there with you and hum
soulful melodies as my right hand strum
your tuned up strings and my left hand fretting
a progression of chords belonging 
to the same key;

you never say to me a word or two
yo never tell me you are tired	
but when I have a song to do
I sit there with you
and hold you close to my chest,
Strum you, caress you and 
you give a soulful  melody with all your best; 

I sit there with you, compose songs 
and sometimes cry on you 
and sometimes smile to you
I fret you, I strum you
But you never say a word or two 
You never tell me you are tired
I sit there with you and 
hope that your strings will not break;
