It's an instrument. On it's own, it doesn't do anything or make any sound. But through us, it becomes all these words expressed above.

To me the piano doesn't mean just one thing. It is my way of life.

I struggle with it
I challenge myself with it
I enjoy with it
I celebrate with it
I go through sorrow with it
I share with it
I have it all for myself
I love it
I am sick of it
It's my friend
It's my enemy
It's my love
It's a stranger
I have slept with it
I have left it untouched for days
I dust it
I couldn't be bothered with it

My vocabulary is limited. How do you express all that in one word?

Being anagram-ishly literal, in "one word":

Wonder.

I would also suggest:

Piano is transcendence.

Piano is freedom.

Piano is self-actualization.

Piano is release (of emotional expressiveness).
