Music that rests
A Treble Clef Once Stood
It's dark
almost quiet
there was music playing
but now there is none.
a lonely silence
where a treble clef
once stood

Eighth notes and quarter rests
dance behind my lids
stepping side by side
slowly spinning
a romantic waltz

The light is rising
the tempo slows
holding that last note
a second
not yet long enough
the sleep ensues
and the song rests
where a treble clef once stood
