Your heart is like the sound of a solo violin
Whether that violin is playing a soft, gentle tune all to itself, or letting out a woeful cry
I can tell only by looking at you, or seeing those soulful eyes
That you are hurting
But even when the song is sad, that violin always sounds so beautiful.
You look at me with love and emotion ineffable
And I hear that violin, even now
One lingering note of this melody brings me to my knees,
Never in my life have I heard music so lovely.
Your one sound is the softest in all the world
Other instruments drown you out in their crescendos, and you are never heard
But here in this silent room, I hear your gentle hymn.
As you look back at me, the violin's sweet cry increases in volume
And quivers with a sweet, quiet joy
So peaceful and loving, it echoes on forever
Lingering on long after its instrument is gone.
So deeply, my heart is pierced
The entire world seems to move through me
This one song makes me part of something greater than myself
And greater than the world
For never again will I feel this close to Heaven.
Let the cry of my own heart's voice swell and rise with yours in song
For you are my Only
I would never feel so worthy of this duet
If you hadn't made me part of you.
I will hear this music forever
And so will I love you, my One
Long after life has come to an end
For always you will play me this eternal hymn
On your one violin.
