As always, music fills the spaces in my soul.  Today it’s Tchaikovsky’s melancholy, beautiful romance, originally written for soprano and piano, here performed by the inimitable Joshua Bell:

None but the lonely heart
Can know my sadness
Alone and parted
Far from joy and gladness
Heaven’s boundless arch I see
Spread out above me
O(h) what a distance drear to one
Who loves me
None but the lonely heart
Can know my sadness
Alone and parted
Far from joy and gladness
Alone and parted far
From joy and gladness
My senses fail
A burning fire
Devours me
None but the lonely heart
Can know my sadness

Yeah, let’s just say it’s that kind of day.  But at least it’s set to poignantly delicious music.
