My Love

My love lies gentle on me
with his fragile body
my fingers wondering
the length of his neck

My love sings so sweetly
his voice is unsurpassed
it is like no other
the sound of Cremona

My love is so passionate
I’m still not used to him
he has such tenderness
an addictive quality

My love is not all mine
he is loaned by a rich man
who was moved by my touch
to whom I am indebted

My love is Gariel
made by Stradivarius
worth over six million
how could he leave me now ?
