Sonnet 174

I play these words for you on my piano
Gently, softly and ever so lightly,
These chords evoking music in your soul;
Reverberations felt ever more deeply,
This little song of love, my gift to you
For all your precious kindness, sans compare,
And all those little things that lovers do
To make hearts sing, or yet just stop and stare
At the majesty of love, grown one from two.
As music mingles like two rivers joined;
As arms embrace and meld fond hearts as one;
Sweet kisses in staid drawing rooms purloined;
Impassioned couplings ‘neath a silver’d moon.
So let us sing and dance our life away…
And may our love’s sweet music ever play.
