Gary Ayvazian's ' I Love The Rain! '
Glissando slips from the player's fingers,
Glides over the piano keyboard.
Each note resounds, echoes in the listeners' cardiac chambers.
Human mind resides inside human heart, subsides;
A rain fall can quench the parched earth's thirst;
It can also burst banks and dams to overflow
Music of the heart, the hardest thing to predict,
(Mind you, mine forever remains constant ;)
For limits and restrictions simply accelerate its forlorn pains.
So, what can one do to tame her tempest?
I have no clue, all I can do is to guard my heart;
But somehow I still believe in me and you,
I know, I know; it makes no sense at all!
But for an optimistic fool like me;
It always does.
