“Musician’s Dream” by Stephanie Paserba


He was her idol
She loved the music he played
She was his lady
He watched her as she swayed
They were lovers
For a moment in time
Their shadows moved too fast
Their hearts were blind
By the passions they shared
And the promises they made
Looking for real love
Under the lights of center stage

Now the lights are dim
The crowd's gone home
They came back to reality
And found themselves alone
With nothing to say
No melodies to play
They looked at each other
And chose to walk away


He stands silent holding his guitar
Wishing for something more
Thinking about his lady
Singing and dancing for the crowd's encore
She sits in her dressing room
Thinking of how it used to be
Did they find truelove once
Or was it just a musician's dream?
