His fingers dance
Upon the chords of his tuneless song

She stands beside him
As she once would
Her arms wrapped around his chest
In a soft embrace
He can feel her breathing
Warm, against his neck beaded with sweat
Her aroma fills the air
with a light summer breeze
He catches his breath

A tear stains his cheek

The eco of their high pitch laughter
Penetrates the now desolate walls
His childrens playful giggles
Still hugging tight to his heart

He breathes in

The melody of his song
Leaving him alone with only
Sweet memories
Just as they did

I was inspired to write this piece while listening to classical music (which is extremely unlike me). Its amazing what music can do with your words.
