Your Love Taught Me To Live

Il Divo & Celine Dion - I Believe in You

One of the best live concerts I've ever attended & no less than in Philippines at Shangri-la Hotel Makati. This is one of those times I'm grateful French is one of the languages I speak and understand. Here's Il Divo. Happy Valentine's Folks!

I called your voice into the dark

Silence was all I heard

I hoped for just a sign, a spark,

Or maybe a gentle word

Yet no response, no one to hear

My plaintive, dying dream

It was shadowed by naught but fear

Life without hope now seemed

In universe alone my heart

Was spinning without reason

It broke into a thousand parts

Scattered among the seasons

Would love appear to show the way

Would it come into my heart to stay

Falling in love is like a dance.

Each dancer has his or her own steps,

but for the dance to work, each dancer

must also understand the steps of their partner.

I heard a soft and gentle voice

Respond to my lost calling

The answer made my heart rejoice

And stopped my endless falling

Before the voice, I felt the touch

It landed on my soul

That for which I'd longed so much

Your love made me whole

It whispered softly in my ear

And made me catch my breath

It took away the ageless fear

The pain, the sting, the death

With the pure joy you gave to me

Your love taught me to live so free.

Eddy, thank you and I'll do my best to share more of my stuff. I'm glad you liked this one.

Mariale2003, thank you and a happy Valentine's day to you too.

Billybuc, I'm pleased you loved the poem. I find poetry a bit of a challenge, never been quite that confident about my ability to express myself creatively so positive feedback such as yours and the others here are quite encouraging for me.

Sweethearts2, thank you for your kind words. As they say, "love is what makes the world go round," and that's why it is important to keep believing in love.
