To Take.. To Hold (lyric poem)

whisper three words, am yers forever baby
those sweet three words are all that i need for oh baby

no one nor time can break us in two
today’s the time our life starts anew

the sun and moon are beaming bright
that ye do
the stars and skies are here tonite
so am i too
the flowers in every garden
will spring our eternal love

love me until the end of time
am loving ye for endless time

every day every night

with ye in my arms i’ll never cry
embrace me yer love and i can fly
stay here and behold
me with yer love
to take and to hold

when i’m with ye i feel alright oh baby
when i’m with ye i feel alive my baby

no darkness can fill this room
no bittenness could ever ruin

love me until the end of time
am loving ye for endless time

every day every night

when without ye i can not survive
with ye so far there’s only strife
come back and behold
me my love
to take and to hold

the stars shine for endless times
dont ever.. leave me behind my love
as moon with sun forever shines
let our love stay the rest of life
through the heavy rains or any strife
i’ll be here for ye the rest of time
like the summer,
autumn & spring time
and the winter

to take to hold just ye & me, my love

as ye may think or already know the title of this lyric poem is
quite the same as Yanni’s title music To Take… To Hold,
truth is, that is the very song that inspired me to write this
since the first time i fell in love w. that track
(actually the entire album, a collection of faves),
that was a decade ago, the 22nd of September 2002.

although, i din’t manage back then to complete this poem
for the music always envelopes me that words can not
express the flow of words from my heart, indeed the song
(and the entire album) always leave me breathless with awe.

few days back i saw again the torn journal-page where the
incomplete poem was written and i thought i should get back to it,
however, inspiration lead me to put up some of my old poems and
to Casey instead:D
but finally, just this weekend while trying to finish some boring
paperworks and to break the unceasing silence i played the track,
it’s been a month i last heard of the song
(which was a surprise my cousin Sugar was playing it while
she was finishing some paperworks too, i never thought she
would pick songs fr. my music collection or she does ever listen
to Yanni, as in ever, cause like my sister she’s always been
a pop r&b girl ;)).

moreover, much to my surprise earlier when finishing the poem
i grabbed the torn journal paper to get the starting date
i could not believe the date and time! imagine?? exactly 10 years!

i first heard of Yanni’s music when i was in my late teens though,
it was my brother who influenced me to listen to Yanni
as well as other awesome music artists like Enya, Depeche Mode,
Enigma, Gregorian Chants and few others, aye mostly New Age &
New Wave artists, when growing up πŸ™‚

anyhow, i would say this lyric poem is a tribute to
Yanni’s To Take.. To Hold.
although just a few couple of years, in 2008, he finally
did collaborate with vocal artists to give lyrics
(or whot he called voices) to his music, wherein i thought
a decade back he must have done so but i think
he shouldn’t have had cause his music alone, without lyrics,
is perfect enough already πŸ™‚
but fans, followers and supporters can choose πŸ˜‰

hope ye liked my version and ye may sing it with Yanni’s music
if ye like, another reason why i finished it so i can sing hehe ;D

perhaps this lyric poem is not as beautiful as Before the Night Ends
with Leslie Mills the revised of To Take To Hold with lyrics & voice

that i just listened to, the first time, right now (00:46 25.09.2012)
though, while finishing this epilogue that i never thought
this would be quite a longer monologue.
anyhow, am glad i din’t listen to Before the Night Ends before
til today else i don’t think this lyric poem will ever complete.
probably i went overboard?

moving on, nevertheless, Thank Ye heaps for dropping by or
for reading this and/or for following πŸ™‚ Blessed be, aynn
