I sit with this loneliness that has captured me...
I sit and can't begin to play the notes on this piano
that had always been so easy for me..I feel this loneliness
inside of me...Why...Why did he have to leave me?

The notes of once happy songs are gone from this heart...
I cant play the keys....I can't remember how...
I try and try to get these happy notes flowing out again
but no matter how hard I try I just can't begin..The notes
seem lost somewhere deep inside of me..

I hit my fingers on the keys the sound that come out is filled
with only misery.. My mind and soul filled with confusion the
man I loved just walked out of my life, leaving me paralyzed
from the notes that my heart onces played and my soul once
felt...The music is gone from this heart.. soul...from me forever..

I can relate to this piece so well.
I played guitar since the age of 12. After my wife left, I literally forgot how to play. The music just vanished from my life.

Beautiful work, Betty.

I know it must hurt Betty, but play "As Time Goes Bye" and you will find comfort from it. And try to seek out friends in the coming days. Maybe a little get together of some kind. It will pass. The pain will pass. Bill Murray
