The music box landed on the wooden floor
bounced twice them bounced no more
opened up
and the ballerina did dance
I was in a trance
memories flood
and im drowning in the past
the music plays
i remember far better days
she was dancing in the wind
i thought our happiness never could end
but everything that begins
must also end
so i sit here silent
music box on the uncaring floor
and tears still flow to gather more

wow, I like this. You always seem to lure the reader in during the poem, and then hook 'em at the very end. Good job.
