Favorite Quote:
"Don't ever frown because you never know whose falling in love with your smile"

“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.”

As I ponder the vacant night,
I dream of birds, I hope for flight.
And as the dreary dark drags on,
the violin will weep it's song.

Each sweet note like a sparrow flies,
higher above the earth they rise.
Each perfect note in it's perfect place,
my body entranced by the beauty and grace.

Separate yet whole, a sugar sweet sigh,
droplets fall as the angels cry.
Who knows to what cage this path may lead,
but for my music, I will bleed.

The author's comments:
Inspiration: The violin! I was listening to 'Speak Softly Love', the love theme from The Godfather, as well as Itzhak Perlman playing the 24 Caprices by Paganini while wrote it.
