Tonight, a violin plays so melodiously

Bow meets with strings as though it has wings

Smoothly gliding through my melancholy mind

Swaying thoughts toward you – you, who I reach to find

O’ breath! You desert this trembling heart of mine

As fingertips, like feathers, reach out to trace your spine

Within a bed of dreams, I pause to watch you stir

In the innocence of sleep, and I feel so very sure

That I have never seen beauty such as this

Tears flow from my eyes, and I cannot resist

But to bend to kiss your mouth, soft, beneath my own

I’ve come to bring a lullaby that’s yours and yours alone

How serene the night as sweet music softly plays

And how enthralled am I to see those burning eyes on me

I cradle your fine head and eagerly travail

To slowly, ever slowly make my way along the trail

That leads me to your passion, filled with urgency

So very gently gliding, as though I bear those wings

I can see you’re aching deep within your eyes

I trace your lips with fingertips to make you realize

The burning deep inside of me that I cannot contain

You give your hand, at my command, to feel a mist of rain

That’s watering your passion, with the taste upon your lips

We mingle to make perfume, a scent we can’t resist

Infusing us with madness; how the music plays

Undulating fervor, as if it rides our waves

The movements, ever graceful, like swans upon a lake

Sensing one another’s need with every breath we take

My breath is yours, my darling; be still, my trembling heart

As I inhale the melody this violin imparts
