You are all so young.
I’m not going to tell you
that I listen to your music everyday.DSCN0961
-But I do.

I am not saying I talk about you
to friends every chance I get.
-Oh, I do.

It would be foolish for me to confess that
I think about all of you, every night, before I sleep.
-Always do.

Or that I wake up every morning
hearing your songs in my head.
-I do that too.

I am not even going to whisper I love you.
That would, of course, be rediculous.
-But forever I will.

Please don’t make me say that three,
very young men, hold such a delightfully
vital place in my world.
-Nevertheless you do.

  1. Marie, once again you’ve done it. Written a poem that describes my feelings and thoughts about our Boys exactly. What a wonderful talent you have for putting down on paper what we are all feeling deep in our hearts for Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca!

    1. Oh Marie, you have captured my feelings and thoughts completely! You have a wonderful way with words. Keep them coming!

  2. Bravo Marie, you said it beautifully, Fitting words for our beautiful young Piero, Ignazio and Gianlucca!

  3. You speak for us all. Marie.I’m grateful to know that its not just me with these thoughts…. its lots.

  4. Marie, that is great. As for the part about talking about them every chance you get. I was just at a store owned by italians and only merchandise made in italy sold, I so much wanted to ask the lady when I checked out if she knew IL VOLO but I didn’t have the nerve, so I didn’t, but just the thought that you want to do that as a fan is bizarre isn’t it? It’s like wanting to ask if they know someone in our “family”.

  5. What a level of trust you have, Marie, to be able to express your feelings about the boys so openly, and open the door of our trust levels to feel, not just ok, but joyously about our feelings for them. And as evidenced by the above comments, we do share all of those feelings. What a blessing to have this blog on which to do that! And for the blessing of having Marie to share with us and inspire us.

    1. Yes, Mary! I so agree with your heartfelt expression about our beloved Marie and all that is possible here.

  6. I don’t know what I have ever done, EVER, to deserve the praise here. For my name to be in the same sentence as the word “blessing” is a blessing. Thank you for your trust in me! Thank you for these words.

    Good that’s done. Now I can go back to crying.

    1. Oh, Marie, you’ve done it again! You DO express the feelings of all of us. Thank you so much for your poems – they are wonderful expressions of all the love we share for Our Boys and each other! And you DO deserve our blessings…

  7. Marie, this is why our numbers continue to grow here with the Flight Crew. All of The Board seems to know what we need when we need it. Thank you for making all of us feel safe and welcomed.

  8. Are you my mirror, Marie? I am speechless. Thanks, I can never express myself so well. The best I can write is “Gianluca, Piero, Ignazio I really really love you”.

  9. Marie, this is just beautiful. You put all of our thoughts and emotions into such beautiful words. You are such a genuine person! I look forward to meeting you someday in the future! You are a gem! Love to the IL VOLO guys!
