The Way He Shares His Heart

He's playing his guitar in the other room.
Nothing in particular,
just the chords in his heart at the moment

Not every wife gets to hear
on steel strings
the sound of her husband's heart
the feeling resonate inside of him

Sometimes it is simply a beat
or maybe a bass line
he hums while driving in the car

Sometimes it is a song
with familiar lyrics
spilling passionately from the shower

Tonight it is the steel strings
of a yellowed electric guitar

Fingers moving,
chords changing,
his thoughts translated into something
we both can feel together

this is good. "the sound of your husbands heart" My husband is very musical, and it my favorite when I hear his just strumming like that. Everything is quite, except his heart, playing over the strings.
