Your Sister’s Eyes

The strings beneath my fingers dig into the fleshy tips
The clear crisp sound bounces off of the walls of the little dining room
It bounces past your sister’s eyes following a straight and steady course
Deep into your smile – your smile is music itself

The sound travels back to me to gain energy to resume its course
It bounces past your sister’s eyes its course is strong and steady
But this time it stops at your smile it lingers there touching your lips
The way I wish I could – delicately but definitely
And when it comes back – when it has finally had enough
When it just can’t take it anymore it returns to me and settles itself on the floor
But not before it has known the love in your smile and in your sister’s eyes
