With his song playing softly

With his song playing softly

A Poem by Magdelena

I so love violins...

He comes in the darkest of nights
Through the deep wildness of the woods
His song playing softly
Oh how long I have searched for this soft sound drifting on by
That haunting music that so calls to my soul, my heart.
Oh the pain it calls.
I close my eyes to the waves of music floating towards me
All around me
Swaying, I feel its soft melody bringing me closer, 
to the sweetness that plays
Upon ears of pleasure, soft and surreal 
I feel its magic engulf me deep within.
'Oh love' I whisper softly to the breeze that passes..
"Hear me', I whimper sadly
My heart feels such pain, yet such love.
For never have I wanted such so badly
Then to find the one who holds the key to my soul
My heart of all hearts.
My very being like none other before..
'Oh, yes!' I sigh, yearning for his touch.
I move quietly, towards the soft sounds of love
My hope, need, for in dreams, 
I have seen him.. Felt him.
His lips upon mine so soft, sweet, gentle.
'Oh my love..' Tears fall slowly
His song playing softly for my ears alone..
No other, for this I hold true. Deep inside..
He looks up... Eyes dark as the night.. 
He gently smiles.. Then moves slowly
His hands still playing
For me... To me... His eyes tender, for he feels the same
His eyes holds the same look of passion.
Just as mine... Yes... Just as mine..
In dreams he comes. His song playing softly across the woods.
Calling me..
Then we are near, our bodies so close that I could see his heart beat.
In echo to my own.
Slowly he moves... His hand holding forth his violin towards me.
Then I am holding it.
Eyes closed I begin to play. His song
Softly I play into the night, my body moving gently.
Oh so gracefully toward its delight, for none other have I felt
We are one, he and I.
Together now, and as his lips move towards me, 
I feel his soft touch.
Yes in dreams he comes
My true one calling out to me softly.
In the darkness of the night
My heart, soul, all I am within 
This man upon the very wind
And the sweetest of sounds.
For he comes to me every night
Like a dream of so long, written upon the wind.
He shall come to me... It says..
With his song softly playing..

This was written for someone close to your heart That is obvious it is beautifully crafted I can actually feel the music which in my case is much more satisfying than hearing it as that detracts form the beauty of the words as far as I'm concerned (just one my little piccadilleos) All I have said in the past in prase of your writing pertains to this effort as well. You are top o the line as far as I'm concerned ny twin top o the line!

I was drawn in by a familiar picture, and a familiar song began to play.
And the story hauntingly familiar as well. Amazing!
Loved this so very much : )

The Violin plays such a sad and meloncholy tune, tearing heart strings as i read your beautiful poem, Bravo my dear friend Bravo, for not many can bring a man like me to shed tears, so once again Bravo

This is haunting and beautiful, especially with the music to go along with it (which is a concept I really like and might have to try myself sometime). I'm not sure if I read it at the right speed to match the music correctly, but I'm pretty sure it still had the same effect. I love your way of telling a story and at the same time including such beautiful visuals as well as spoken word. Well done!
