My Guitar Hurts - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

My guitar hurts
When I play our song
How can magical beautiful strings
Bring on so many painful melodic stings
In just one moment when I wish to fly on wings

My guitar hurts
When I play our song
And tonight I will sing along
And as I play the six strings with a sad tune
I will stare out into the night and its full moon

I will be singing and strumming
I will be thinking and humming
For these playful chords of this night
May make me feel eventually alright
My guitar hurts as I play our song tonight.

    My 23 year old son wanted an electric guitar from me. Recently I've bought him one from USA. He was very happy to get this gift from me. He wrote in his Facebook status: Tonight my fingers will bleed!
    I liked the status. While his fingers bleed, his heart will most likely soar.
