Gren's Evergreens (Golden Oldies) # 1 - Poetry Contest
Sponsor: Teppo Gren

I chose the song: "Speak Softly Love by Andy Williams"


PART I: The original lyrics
"Speak Softly Love"

Speak softly, love 
And hold me warm against your heart
I feel your words 
The tender trembling moments start
We're in a world, our very own
Sharing a love that only few have ever known

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one

Speak softly, love 
So no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love 
We make will live until we die
My life is yours and all because
You came into my world with love so softly love

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one

Speak softly, love 
So no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours and all because
You came into my world with love so softly love

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PART II - My poem
"Let's Breath In Silence, Love"

Let’s breath in silence, love…
and take me to far away distant lands,
our souls, the Lord has given from above,
gently, my love, walk with me hand in hand.

May our stillness devour the days of calamity,
let’s breath in silence, love…
while the Lord gives us mercy in our humanity,
flying freely through the sky like a dove.

We vowed compassion when days are rough,
so let’s soothe together during turbulent hours,
let’s breath in silence, love…
and stay calm, while our peace is showered.

Speak softly, love, our placid moments are here,
our tenderness of tranquility is never enough,
while our silence soars through the atmosphere,
let’s breath in silence, love…
