Speak Softly Love: A letter from the Godfather

Dear Kay,

I am powerful. I have no remorse. I was given birth by God himself, for being something intense, something fierce. Circumstances made me bump into the devil. I lost my Big Brother in a gunfight. I lost my other Brother too. I ordered his murder. Cruel ain’t I? But I stick firm to my reasons. I can’t tolerate treachery, you know, everyone should know. Even if I have to see my Mother’s pale, maddening face seeing her favorite child’s carcass. Maybe once I was a chocolate faced, ideal, simple man. But today I have to be powerful. I can’t have any remorse.

My Father, oh, my dear Papa, jittery now. Unable to reign the empire of our establishments. I don’t give him the blame for burdening the sacks on my back. He had no choice. He never wanted this for me. Never ever. He wanted me to be out of this Corleone dynasty drama of our’s, selling wine and olive oil. Ha ha ha. An oversimplification of what we do for a living. I would not hide anything from you. Though Connie and Tom insist on skipping a few stanzas, for your sake. An advice which I felt is correct for me to follow.

I do not enjoy doing this, this transgression. I am fed up. Like my Father, I also want out of this business. But I can’t without you. Our children I feel will be the only way. I am tired of gunpowder and knives. I am tired of demanding deaths. I am tired of associates bowing to me. I am tired of sitting in this mighty chair. I am tired of lying to all, to you. 

So I hope you will understand. Yes, I am dangerous, menacing, vicious, desperate, mafia. But I still dare to ask for your hand in marriage, still have the courage to ask you to be the Mother of my kids. I know you are simple, fragile. You might not be able to coup up with me. But I request you to take the risk. Be with me. Let me love you, honestly, sincerely. You are the only piece of light I can find, which can diminish my darkness. I will make sure your sacrifice is worth it. I am confident.

Sii con me.

Your Michael

The Godfather

This was my version of a brief conversation from the iconic Godfather trilogy. Some things may mismatch with the original movie, but I wrote it my way, with my flavors added. Now, this passionate, zealous letter needs a proper sign-off. What could be better than Andy Williams, Speak Softly Love?

The most romantic song of 1972 is still able to win a million hearts, bold and ethnic.

Speak softly, love and hold me warm against your heart
I feel your words, the tender trembling moments start
We’re in a world, our very own
Sharing a love that only few have ever known
Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one
Speak softly, love so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours and all because
You came into my world with love so softly love
Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one
Speak softly, love so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours and all because
You came into my world with love so softly love
Lyrics perfectly portraying the love of a ruler, a commanding man, a mafia lord, yes the Godfather.

Hope the offer made to Kay, is one which she can’t refuse.

Fino alla prossima volta,

Addio.

Ushnish, The Crown…
