You are sunshine in the morning
and the northern star at night…
the clouds that give me warning
when the storm is out of sight.
You’re water when my well runs dry,
a breath of clean, fresh air.
You build the castles in my sky
and keep them standing there.
When ill winds blow my boat too far,
I set my sails for you.
In each new day that dawns, you are
the sweet, distilling dew.
The loads I bear are lighter
as you lend your strength to mine.
The songs I sing are brighter
when our voices intertwine.
Your music lifts me, fills me up.
My heart stands all amazed.
I honor you; I raise my cup;
I drink you in, quite dazed.
You are my one and only love,
Prince Charming plus; it’s true…
The King of All Clichés, because
I can’t find words for you.
