The best investment I ever made

My son upon this Christmas Eve 
I reminisce of midnight hours
Your fingers dancing over tenuous keys
And the emotions your talent empowers

I couldn't comprehend how you taught yourself to play 
Or just how this symphony of one became 
The songs you have inside of you like heaven on display
I revel in your poignant craft uniquely unprofaned

It's true that your propensity 
Can lean toward darkened depth
A common vein for artists 
To be moody and depressed

For your pain releases beauty 
by your gift it's voice relates
You know your in the masters company 
of Mozart, Bach, and Hemingway

So when your struggles weigh 
As the sea laden oceans sand
Take your seat and breathe
Stretch out your feral hands

Creating an instrumental euphoria 
For the lonely and the damned
Open the gate to moods your feigning
Though others will misunderstand 

Christmas Eve and it's memories
This flashback came my way
Of your very first piano 
The best investment I ever made

But one day when I'm aged and old
It will be you who cares for me
Play for me then on that Christmas Eve 
With your love in every stroke

    So beautifully and eloquently written. Your son has a flair for music and you for words. I hope you've shown this poem to him. Right on, proud mother. My very best to him. His name? Licia :-)

    Hello Delysia, what a beautiful name you have! This poem is my oldest sons Christmas Eve gift. His name is Jordan and is 21. It a nice tradition we have... We use our talents to present a gift on the Eve every year. I write poems, Jordan writes and records songs, Josiah (19) draws us our portraits, Benjamin (16) does a stand up comedy about his family and Aaron (13) builds us a contraption as he's our engineer. wonderful Holiday! Thx for stopping by... Hugs
