The Piano Dude

There was a small boy learning to play the keyboard across the street from where I used to live and he always played the theme to the movie Titanic...I think it was the only song he knew..one day I yelled across the street and asked him his name and told him I enjoyed his serenade, he answered back...I'm just the piano dude.....so this is for him


The piano dude plays his melody
Sending Titanic's theme across the wind
Notes rising, flying far from the sea
As if a message to us all to send

Listen from here far below
This place where beauty should never go
Unsinkable ship or so they said
Yet here am I all but dead

Hear me as I send my song
Close your eyes and dream along
Listen and always remember well
The perfect ship, that pride befell
