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
