Joy Division

Your digital piano,
is powered by electricity,
but without you,
it stands in silence.

You play every day.
You have to.
It kinda keeps you breathing.

Then one day,
mid-song,
the power goes out.

It’s happened before.

You call your electrician,
but this time,
he has trouble restoring the power.
You’ll have to wait.

In the the meantime,
you play your acoustic guitar,
and though you’re not very good,
you do what you can,
until you get the power back.

    I am older now and have been through many outages
    And have seen myself come back stronger
    Even when I doubted that I would
    So as I understand where you are now,
    I am certain that surprisingly ,surges will come
    Even when you don’t expect it!
    So my darling , hold on tight
    For you have so much light
    And good times will roll !
