violin lessons

I have now officially conquered 3 songs on the violin and am perfecting my 4th. Though it is not by any standards what you may call professional playing, I'm proud to say that I did it on my own steam or rather by using my ears. After 3 weeks, with only half hour practice about every other day, I think I'm doing okay. ;)

She cries on the grave, no one hears her
But the souls that gently watch over her
She can't stop her tears, nobody can
Her pain is too much to bear, she no longer can
She sits on the stone, hugging her knees
Her cries disturbing the place's peace
Hoping he would come, she lifted her head
But all she can see is fog covering the road ahead
The wolves are crying, sharing her sorrow
The night is long, is there still tomorrow?
I opened my eyes and saw myself here
On the same stone that girl sat and fought her fear
Is she just a dream lurking on my side?
Or is she a reality I cannot hide?
