Playing The Trumpet
It's hard playing the trumpet...
then again, it's hard not playing,
once that sound gets inside you.
I've been playing since I was 9
with a little 40 year break after high school
until my father died, 10 years ago.
I brought his old silver trumpet home
from the funeral and soon,
playing the trumpet is all I wanted to do.
A kid, in concert, jazz, and marching bands...
a kid turning into an old man
still fascinated, still yearning
still playing the trumpet
