Dedicated to my beloved wife:
You are the sweetest joy I have, especially in the Spring.
You are the flowers and the sun and all the birds that sing.
Yes, you are these and all the stars.
Each breath of rain washed air, because the love that lights your eyes are mine alone to share.
Spring would never come again if you were gone from me.
My heart would be an empty haunt of lonely memories.
You are my every season, especially my Spring.
You are the only one I love, my all, my everything.
