The rhythm brushes across my ribs,
And the ballad strikes at my bones,
A song I think I've heard before,
The sweetest melody I've ever known.
Every time you whisper my name,
I feel each note run up my spine.
Like a tone of optimism,
Or a harmony of hope,
I wish you were mine.
Like an incessant pitch that's stuck in my head,
It's a noise I can't seem to shake,
A tune that awakens the sound of my spirit,
When my hands hurt and my body aches.
The pitch that brings me back in time,
When my mind is silent--at rest--
Are you my resonance of relief,
My heart's beating out of my chest.
You're the piece to finish my puzzle,
I reach a conclusion that you make me whole,
Reminded by every 'I love you'
Of the song you sing in my soul.
