SOFTLY

Softly my love come to me.
Open you heart let me see.
The love you hold inside of thee.
Touch my lips so tenderly.

Softly my love kiss those lips.
Melt my heart, bestow your bliss.
Take me to heaven, love sublime.
I am yours and you are mine.

Softly my love all night through.
Hold my body next to you.
Wrap me up in your embrace.
Of true love now let me taste.

Softly my love let me taste you.
Inhale, touch and caress you.
I give myself to you my sweet.
No one else can compete.

Who knew I had some romance left ? Not me. My muse surprised me with this one Afzal.

Thank you Janice. I did write it as a song and recorded it also, as an accompaniment here. I should repost that recording I guess.

Thank you Sunita. I like to think music is in my DNA. as my father was a gifted musician and had a beautiful tenor voice. I also LOVE dancing.

Thank you Darren. We have a song that goes..."I can cook and I can sew, I can keep the house right tidy. Rise up in the morning and get the breakfast ready. Nothing in this wide world would make me half as cheery, as a wee fat man, who would call me his own dearie." I had practiced it to sing at my sister's wedding....but no one asked me to take the stage. I cannot cook...but I can knit!

Beautifully composed, Jean. Would make a great song. Congrats on POTD. // Barry

It's actually inspired by a song my daddy said he sang my mum on honeymoon in 1955..."Three times a day Jeaniemac....breakfast, lunch and dinner."

Absolutely beautiful, Jean. I had to go have a listen. You have a lovely voice. Congratulations on POTD. Well deserved:)

Thank you Darren. I'm shy normally with my voice because my three sisters are much better singers than me. Since I joined Poetrysoup, my confidence has soared.
