Song for Silvia
by Jenny Saarloos

Her name is music
She sings for no one
She is everything beautiful
and beauty is her

Her name is music
I buy her silver and silk
my heart is a piano
my eyes are the ocean
I see the ocean in her eyes

Her name is music
it sounds like silver and silk
Silvia of my dreams
You are light
When you are alone
you sing
and I have stopped breathing
to listen
