Life would be meaningless without your love, 
the sound of the whispering rain on fallen leaves 
stirring up the fresh smell of air that has been scrubbed clean 
wasted without your heart to share it with. 

Because without you there is only the thought of you, 
creating an all-consuming emptiness
that demands to be pursued 
to realize any semblance of happiness. 

Without you, there may be life 
but there certainly would be no joy, no purpose and no solace. 
And in your absence, all that is beautiful 
would remain unappreciated and unnoticed. 

The smile that slowly transforms your face 
and brilliant sparkle that lights up your eyes 
at the beginning and end of every new day 
calls to my soul churning a desire to bear witness to such splendor 
every available opportunity for as long as I draw breath. 

You give it all meaning, and with you, time slows to a crawl. 
You are the beauty in my world Illuminating the dark corners 
and elevating the ordinary beyond its potential. 

Yours may be but a single life, 
but you've touched so many 
and mine more than any other. 
And through our love, you've found a way to manifest 
the happiness and beauty in our lives 
and make our dreams come true
