Speaking to me in a voice soft and low
     A voice only once reserved for the angels
          Love whispers in my ear delicately
     Telling me of joy and of sorrow
Filling my heart with the promise of things to come

I hear Love's voice in the wind
     Whistling through the air and the trees
          Singing a melody quiet and pure
     In a warm, comforting alto range
Filling my mind with the dreams of another tomorrow

I walk every day with the voice of love
     It echoes through my mind and lingers in my soul
          The voice that I've sought for so long to hear
     The voice that makes me weak and sends shivers down my spine
The voice of love that speaks to me always
                                                          . . . your voice. . .

You speak the voice of Love so well...breathtaking as always you silver tougned angel.

 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

As always you deliever beautiful poetry filled with intensity. And this was no exception! This is simply wonderful...should be put to music (my opinion). You captured the feelings of love so divinely here.
