Life’s Melody

Mum and Dad wound the music box.
Beautiful music sounded.
They showed me how to
wind the instrument
before they walked into
the future and out of my sight.
I showed the box to my girl.
We enjoyed the melody.
My daughter was not strong
enough to turn the handle by herself.
Now it is my turn to pass on
out of sight without her.
Will she be alright.
I have to trust she will
know how to continue
without me and hope
there will be others
to share the melody with her.
