It floats across the air, from where he isn't sure.
Traces of memory resonating in his mind.

Early Sunday mornings, the house so quiet his pajama-padded feet made no sound on the stairs.
Mother's fingers on the ivories, so soft and gentle they barely made a sound.

Yet decades later Don can snatch a melody from the ether and remember.
His head spins as he's four years old again.

He doesn't recall the name of the song, just the sweet warmth of sitting by her side as she played.
As the music fades so does the vision of her smile.

That is just a bit heart breaking.
