Tinkling - Poem by Michelle Tiddy

It was faint, that tiny tinkling melody
I knew you were there, but I couldn't quite hear
Slowly it grew stronger, the intensity magnified
You drew closer, my heartbeat increased

Could you hear me? Call my name
Across the oceans, space means nothing
The whisper becomes louder, screams in my ear
Then you exploded into my dreams

If I could only hold you now, against my heart
So that you could truly feel the love
That I could impart into your glowing brain
Where I find solace, and burning

Again you stir the passions in me
You are the amazing one, the one for me
There is nowhere that I would rather be
Than with you, upon this tinkling melody

So take me my love, take my soul
Take me with you, in you, above you, around you
For I am nothing without you, truly
You are my mirror image, you claim my eyes

Please know that I would die for you
My arms are never wide enough to take you
Into the burning depths and fire of me
I only love you for evermore, know that

And now I'm quiet, I am done, I am none
But I hear you again and I'm free
What will you do with me, just what?
I am yours, truly, truly yours.
