Just saying that I love you
really quite express
How I need you for everything that makes for happiness,
Because I cannot put in words the way you make me feel,
How being with you proves to me that heaven must be real.
For you bring laughter to my day and perfume fills the air
And roses seem to bud and bloom whenever you are there
And often, if it's raining, there's a sunlight in my day
That even in the summer never comes when you're away.
In fact, there's only half of me when I can't see your face
And nothing that I do can fill the darkness of that space.
I only seem to start to breathe when you are there to kiss
And feel, when I can touch your hand. So many things like this,
It doesn't matter what we have or even what we do,
My life will have been worth it, if I spend it all with you,
For you are everything I ever wanted in my life,
And I am grateful every day, that you became my wife.
