Based on how I felt when the love of my life said my favourite Shakespeare quote: 'If music be the food of love, play on, give my excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and so die'

If music be the food of love

I thought I heard him say

A Shakespeare quote, my favoured one

He took my breath away

To hold a moment, so sweet, so sound

I knew at once 'twas love

My fallen heart had reached his arms

My body left above

Adventures lay across the stream

A stream of hope and tears

I hear him say the line again

As music reached my ears

Elizabeth
