You are my sunflowers on sunless days;
The swirls of yellow in a starry night.
It’s you who will inspire every phrase,
Each note, each melody I’ll come to write.
Our tale is not a tale as old as time –
You’ve taught me to create tales that are new.
You’ve shown me just how perfect, how sublime,
How magic time can be, when spent with you.
I hope to see the world with you someday,
And see you at all corners of this sphere,
From home’s dear comfort by Port Philip Bay
To Amsterdam, or Guam, or just…right here,
For you make here just right. You and your smile
Have made this year completely worth the while.
