Music and the heart

I've just started learning the piano.I know its late, cause everyone starts off in their childhood years... but at least I'm doing it!*better late than never!*
Its once a week. And my teacher is a dentist! so cool huh... diff professions but we connect due to music...

Its difficult to express what I wanna say in this post...
But I hope I get this right..

The chords strike slow,
sharp at times and low.
My fingers flow.
And something triggers a tear.
A certain set of keys releases emotions.
It soothes me...
I play it
again and again
and again.
Silence
and the balm.
