The Resurrectionist

A piano resurrects the dead

Souls of composers that have spread

The music which we love today

The ones we dream to be one day


A piano resurrects the style

Of music that makes the world smile

Music from the past

Styles of music; unsurpassed

Baroque, Classical and Romantic

Styles of music; so gigantic


A piano resurrects the emotions

Evoked by certain musical notions

A passion that is so strong

It can only be expressed in song


A piano resurrects the friendship

Develops a relationship

Between piano and player

Adding a new layer

It helps them become one

            To play together; much more fun!


A piano resurrects the desire

To compete; a sensation of burning fire

The belief that we will one day be the best

It is our greatest quest


A piano resurrects the gratitude

We have towards the people, who take us to such altitude

That no one else can reach us

They train us to be the best; they are teachers

They teach us everything they know

They are the ones that make us glow
