A Knee Play


The day with its cares and perplexities is ended and the night is now upon us.
The night should be a time of peace and tranquility, a time to relax and be calm.
We have need of a soothing story to banish the disturbing thoughts of the day,
to set at rest our troubled minds, and put at ease our ruffled spirits.

And what sort of story shall we hear ?
Ah, it will be a familiar story, a story that is so very, very old,
and yet it is so new. It is the old, old story of love.

Two lovers sat on a park bench with their bodies
touching each other, holding hands in the moonlight.

There was silence between them.
So profound was their love for each other,
they needed no words to express it.
And so they sat in silence, on a park bench,
with their bodies touching,
holding hands in the moonlight.


Finally she spoke.
"Do you love me, John ?" she asked.
"You know I love you, darling." he replied.
"I love you more than tongue can tell.
You are the light of my life.
My sun. Moon and stars.
You are my everything.
Without you I have no reason for being."

Again there was silence as the two lovers sat on a park bench,
their bodies touching, holding hands in the moonlight.
Once more she spoke. "How much do you love me, John ?" she asked.
He answered : "How much do I love you ? Count the stars in the sky.
Measure the waters of the oceans with a teaspoon.
Number the grains of sand on the sea shore. Impossible, you say."

"Yes and it is just as impossible for me to say how much I love you."

"My love for you is higher than the heavens, deeper than Hades,
and broader than the earth. It has no limits, no bounds.
Everything must have an ending except my love for you."

There was more of silence as the two lovers sat
on a park bench with their bodies touching, holding hands in the moonlight.

Once more her voice was heard.
"Kiss me, John" she implored.
And leaning over, he pressed his lips
warmly to hers in fervent osculation...

Poxa...Que maravilha! Ele fez a trilha sonora do filme espiritualista " Nosso Lar" de Chico Xavier.

Não conhecia esta letra...Amigo, nada melhor para um sono tranquilo ou tirar o nosso sono que o sentimento amor rsrs.


Fico feliz que já esteja recuperado. De coração! A vida só tem sentido quando vivemos com e pelo afeto. E tenho o suficiente por meus amigos( não importa se os conheça pessoalmente ou não) e por tudo e todos, de modo geral.


Um carinhoso beijo amigo e grande abraço.

SAM;
Muito obrigado. Sim, por vezes ganhamos grandes amigos embora não os conheçamos pessoalmente.
Sabe, eu desconhecia que o Philip Glass tinha assinado a banda sonora do filme "Nosso Lar". Vi agora mesmo o trailer no Youtube e parece ser um bom filme. Infelizmente o filme ainda não chegou ao mercado português :(
Obrigado pelas suas sempre carinhosas palavras.
:)




Film-m k;
Concordo contigo. A música do Sr. Glass é sempre bela e... quase irreal. :)

Uma bela escolha. E sim, é quase sempre bela e irreal:) Esta conheci através do filme 'As Horas'.

De fato, o Philip Glass tornou-se muito reconhecido depois da banda sonora que compôs para o filme "As Horas" :)
