Joseph John Ferraro
Softly Are Spoken
For the softest words are spoken
by the eyes; head by the heart;
and felt by the spirit.
Softly spoken are the words of love
Softly, sweetly, to you, my love.
The world outside matters not.
For we are entwine in a lover's knot
Softly and deeply you penetrate
my inner being.
For you have given life and
my love, special meaning.
Softly spoken for evermore
For it is you,
I truly love and adore.
For now our souls will meet.
and make our love and life complete.
