The melody of my heart


If I would try to put words to paper
and try to describe love I would fell short.
If I would ask a million musicians to write a melody
even they would not be able to get it right,
as love is something difficult to describe.

Even if I could pluck all of the stars from heaven
and string them up as pearls
to give them as a gift of love,
I would have given nothing.

If I could empty the sea
and make it a paradise for you,
even that action would not describe
the depths of love.

You have woven my thoughts
like a spider web
and even every moment
that I make is felt by you.

You have become my universe
and I wear your love like a turban
around my heart.

You have brought my childhood longings
back into my thoughts
and a longing to belong to somebody.

It is difficult to express how much
I do love you
but love itself becomes the melody
that sets words to paper.

Attempted to Believe Matilda:
