The Mumblings of a Dreamer

I have always been touched by romantic music and Chopin and Rachmaninov have always enraptured me. Maybe because of their love of the piano and their deep understanding of a dreamer's mind and the sublime expression of passion they achieve through their music.

One piece in particular - Rachmaninov's Variations on a theme by Paganini stands out. It has an astonishing ability to transport me back to when I was much younger - when I attempted to crudely interpret this enchanting piece of music on my piano.

Listening to it reminds me of all the dreams you thought you would chase forever - but somehow - they seem to slip away.

The Mumblings of a Dreamer

Please do not judge me,
On the man you see today,
This isn’t what I wanted,
I have so much more to say.

I’m just lost to who I should be,
I’ve forgotten all my lines,
I’ve betrayed my boyhood promises,
I’ve strayed from my inner child.

They’ve made me lose my footing,
And now I’m in a trance,
When I know I could be soaring
I’m stuck in a clumsy stance,

Buried beneath this façade, though,
Is still depth and veracity,
Whispers beneath the surface,
Just lacking alacrity.

I once knew desire and soulfulness,
And cared not for convention.
I would stand up for those who needed me,
Despite the jeers and dissention.

I know, though, that I can revive and rise
Above my falls and fears,
To overcome my errors,
And recapture my squandered years.

I just need you to kneel down with me
And offer me your hand,
The kind I knew that I once had,
When I was only a little lad.
