Song of love

The song of love sang silently
in chords of deepest pain,
as strumming, fingered certainty;
as heart's new hopes re-made.
And in the notes of dreaming,
the tune was slowly played,
upon my mind and body;
the passion re-arranged.
I rose upon the lilt of joy,
and fell into the depths,
of all the best and worst of me;
of all that you possessed.
In soaring hallelujahs,
the voice of love was raised,
in tribute to relationship;
to honour all we gave.

Play a piece of instrumental music. While listening, write the scene, story, images you hear. Craft a poem.

K.D. Lang's Hallelujah.
