What would I give

What would I sacrifice

To re-live that night

We spent together




When only silence escaped my lips

My heart was already wound to yours

As you poured yours out

Through indescribable harmony

On your four-stringed, beat-up instrument

My every thought

Every excitement

Every hour

My muse

One I never knew I needed in so many years
