A noodling resulted in a pleasant little riff that became "Maria", about a love and it's caring nature when a loved one departs before their time.

"Maria"
by Rick Landers (c) 2021

I admit, yes I'll confess
I watched her slowly remove her dress
Such a lovely sight to see
She claimed her name was just Maria
and that should be enough for me

I aimed to claim her as my own
Marry her and build a home
A bittersweet dream, a rose with thorns
Not quite sure what we'd become
While falling into some great unknown

And she, could comfort me
in my darkest hour
She would have this power over me
The world could see, she could light my night and day
She could move storm clouds away

Her constellation filled my nights
She pulled me close, ever so tight
My fingers combed her long black hair
A mystery her vacant stare
She's In the room, clearly not here

We sit here old eating scones
She says her coffee's getting cold
I get up fetch another round
Pour two cups, sit back down
She hands me a flower that she once found

And she, could comfort me
in my darkest hour
She would have this power over me
The world could see, she could light my night and day
She could move storm clouds away, away, away

I sit here feeling all alone
Maria's here, she's nearly gone
I've worked my fingers to the bone
I'll do for her until she's done
and that should be enough for me
