If music be the voice of love
Then let me be your violin.
Hold me gently in your hands
And I will bring forth such glorious notes
That you will be bathed in the glowing rhapsody
0f my love for you.

My music will rise up loudly enough
To reach heaven itself -
Yet softly enough
To fall gently upon your ear.

Handle my love as you would a delicate instrument
For the way I am touched is the way I must respond.

Harshness or anger directed at my strings
Can result only in notes of discord and misery
Whereas the gentle touch of tenderness
Will create melody divine.

Don't place me in a corner,
Untouched and unwanted
For, if another picks me up, due to your neglect, I will respond .....
For that is the nature of what I am.

But, if the fingers touching me are not yours,
Then the song played
Would be but a hollow echo of the joy
I am capable of producing.

For I was designed for your hands alone
And only your touch can turn the key,
Releasing all the wonderful melodies
That lie untouched inside of me.

If music be the voice of love
Then hold me gently to your chin,
Caress me through eternity
And let me be vour violin.

This is probably the most romantic piece of writing I have ever seen and it does have such a musical quality to it! But I'm sure you have many jems from the past that should be reposted! I'll be looking for them!

Thank you, Pepper and suthern.

Denise, I thank you also. I actually have several I would like to repost but I'm torn between the fact that all of the "old guard" has seen them and yet, there are so many new ones..it's a quandry.

Too lovely to be only words, it must be music, too. It is wonderful, Balladeer.

Balladeer, you have captured the essence of me. This is me! Great job, touching piece!
I have tried to explain this very thing before, just could never quite put it this well!!!

Balladeer, this is sooooo beautiful....

Handle my love as you would a delicate instrument
For the way I am touched is the way I must respond...... How true is this? so very true

I'm so very surprised no one has said they would be your "bow" yet...

I'd not seen this one, 'Deer. Thanks for the repost!

Oh...I am definately thinking of taking some music lessons
Lovely piece Balladeer...so beautifully written like a raphsody. It's music in itself, so fine in it's flow. BRAVO!!

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments. Sunshine, no one wants to be my "bow" because they don't want ANYTHING with strings attached.

'Deer.....*sigh* this was gorgeous! I am sorry to say I missed this the first time around. I was deeply touched by this, I am a music lover myself so I can relate well to this. I'd like to see some more of your gems from the past sweets.

Wow, I must say that I'm very glad you reposted this gem, Balladeer. Outstanding, truly outstanding work. One of the most romantic things I've ever read...

Are you sure this is a repost, M&M???
I leave you alone for a day or two and look at the mischief you get into...
