Wake up and throw the windows wide

Let the morning air fill the room, so fresh so cool 

It’s breath as loving as a kiss on the inside

Of dream so peaceful that it is with regret we wake 

Draw another breath

And the bliss is one we with a curse forsake 

Cold guitar in my hands

Performing surgery that was not planned

Open up

Step inside

Feel the love without the pride

Heart beating skipping time 

Letting the fingers play out what’s on my mind

Turn it up

Play it soft

Open heart surgery 

But at what cost?

Gentle blues reaching out 

A loving whisper

It’s way too early to shout.
