Original YT playout date: 13 April 2009
To my wife, who is like an angel in human form, I wrote the present song (words and melody) in 2002 in Moscow.
I wasn’t able to play it very well, and I am still not very good at performing it – maybe some musicians out there can help me do a proper rendering of this composition? There are two verses here, but the whole poem was four verses long, and I cannot remember all of it. The chords given below are what they should be – the piano here is obviously not in that key, even before I chipmunked it!
1. To (C)you, who (G)soar on (a)eagle’s (e)wing
A(a)bove all (C)other (e)women,
To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C)sing
My (a)heart with (G)love a-(e)brimmin'(E)
To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C7)sing
My (F)heart with (G7)love a-(C)brimmin'(G)
2. The mountain lake and forest fringe
Are fair enough to view
But far beyond their beauty’s range
I hold the look of you
I cannot recall the third verse, which related to the sound and scent of her, but the fourth verse logically follows:
4. Because my senses you full fill
Good sense it seems to make
That I should love and love you still
And never you forsake.
And that’s exactly what I’ve done!
