Yes, this is semi-based off of the movie the Red Violin. But seriously, if your husband was a luthier, wouldn't you want him to immortalize you in an insturment?

The smooth curves of

the shoulders,

into the waist,

then the bottom bout,

remind him of his Valencia.

He runs his fingers

along the sanded back,

like he did to hers.

A tear rolls from his cheek

into the varnish he mixes,

now with his sadness and her life.

What  a plesant vermillion hue.

This master bow, the thinks,

deserves horsehair,

but he uses hers instead.

He slaves for this cello.

He puts his life,

his love,

her blood,

his sweat,

his tears,

into it.

An immortal now,

so lives his Valencia.
