I Wish I Could Hold Onto Music

As I play,
the notes blend in an angelic tone
that brushes my heart
and makes me wish for more.

Something I could hold in my hands,
like a delicate, speckled bird
and keep with me
so it doesn't fly away.

Something I could taste,
like a crisp apple
that I could savor
for more than just a moment.

The radiant melodies that I play,
why do they flee so soon?
I wish I could possess the harmonies
that float out of my grasp.

I wish I could cherish the music
for more than just a minute.
