The Music Of Your Soul – A Quadrille

The Music Of Your Soul

As darkness came
the dulcet tones
of your voice filtered through
the still night air
I would hang on to every word
falling from your lips
Each syllable perfectly enunciated
creating the beautiful
Music of your soul
Smiling I danced to its sweet melody

    A lovely poem.
    The use of past tense gives a tint of sadness. Something that was, but is no longer. Well done, Christine.

    Wonderful Christine this really reminded me of my daughter and I. I always enjoyed speaking crisply annunciated in a rich baritone voice, and she would giggle, sit on my lap and say dad I love you. This piece brought that all back to me, this warm memories — thank you! 👍🏼🙂✌🏼🕊
