With The Last Note (Fading Music) - Poem by Sir T.A.E.P.S

With the last note (fading music)

Where did we go wrong?
Where did we lose control?
What happened to the fairy-tale we once lived?
What happened to the dreams we once had?
A cabin of hope was built over months yet shattered overnight with just one fight
Rumors tipped the scales, we lost our balance and we took two steps back
Two steps into our garden and now all that remains are trampled flowers of trust
Anger made the melody, so we sang along with hurtful lyrics
Took a deep breath of disappointment so we exhaled some silence
Hurricane heart break was devastating and up to now my heart remains an exhibit
Once upon a time our heartbeat made the music and our romance wrote the lyrics
But as melody of love goes on I fear the last note
because with the last note of this song, this heart might just stop beating

Clouds cleared the day I met you and a melody began
With every note of that melody my heart beat to a new rhythm
Took a couple of steps and found myself on a mountain top
With a leap of faith I landed in your heart
A place warmed by affection and showered by love
You were different from the rest so I had to ask
You were amazing so I took a moment to appreciate
Before I knew it, loving you was my lifestyle
Every word was precious so time wasn't wasted
I loved you for the person I grew to know and not just for what I saw
In my head it all started with one question but soon it was all a fairy-tale
Dropped the game of cards because I couldn't bear to lose a queen of hearts
You weren't perfect; I was more than a mess
Mathematics would say 70% +30% = 100%
So complement + complement should give completion of this set
We weren't the one's to take the credit because God made it work
We loved the music so we danced to every note
But now I ask what happened to the music coz it's starting to fade
If it's what I did please let me know
Silence never made music so it won't help this song
These battle scars don't look like they are fading,
I just hope it isn't going to be one of us fading as the music draws to the last note

I never knew what love was so you made me listen to the music
The Keyboard played a key in a G flat for kindness
The flute made a harmony of patience
The guitar made an acoustic echo of forgiveness
The bass of the drums told a story of endurance and hope
I was never good at picking a band but this I know,
There was no trumpet of selfishness that stole the show
No one played the cello of pride
The lyrics kept no record of mistakes made in rehearsal
Though not perfect, the notes left no room for irritation
Day and night that song played in my heart dedicated to you
It was none other than the song of love
We were two worlds apart but since one heart was in place, one rhythm was heard
Pardon the rules I broke and tell Santa I was a good boy coz all I want is one Christmas wish
If I had one wish, loving you defines my Christmas wish list
Shadows may fade with the sunset, but let not this love fade away with the passage of time
Silence doesn't mean I'm avoiding you,
If you are looking for me I'm in the other room waiting on my knees
Praying that the last note of this song lasts forever
because it's a note of love I dedicated to you

We say heart beat makes the music
So before the last note plays, please forgive me
We say heart beat makes the music,
So with the last note I hope you hear me
Let the last note last forever
because the last note says I love you
