Shadows in Silence

For anyone who has experienced real love filled with passion...


Shadows in Silence

Shadows in silence

We walk together

Only you and me

In such beauty

Only heaven lies ahead of us

Souls bonded into one

That only we understand

The red sun sets west

A hazy veil overpowers us

And we are set free

To dance in the sky

Just you and me

Like we were

Always meant to be

Sweet and gentle

Like a faint whisper

You say to me

In such ectasy

The moon overhead

Penetrating silver glow

Shivers that come and go

In waves through me

I love you with all my heart

You sing in a gentle melody

Dawn that rises in the east

Sacred mist falls to sleep.

Thank you Minnetonka that means a lot to me. I know what you're talking about. :)

I agree with Minnetonka Twin. Reading the poem while listening to the music takes you to a mystical place. Close your eyes when you finish reading and you can feel the mist fold around you. Very nice combination of music, poetry and magic.

This was very good! The sense I got from it was the lovers here were so in love with each other that they felt themselves getting closer to their perfect paradise.

"Only heaven lies ahead of us

Souls bonded into one"

If the poetry for your book looks as it good as this, I'm pretty sure it's going to sell very well. Best wishes!
