If only if the stars could speak
And the winds could dance
They will testify to our romance
And call out your name
As we play this game
Because since they day I met you 
My life has never been the same
You mended my heart
And uplifted my spirit beyond expectation
You are the source of my joy and felicitation
Childhood friend and lover
After you there is no other
I cherish not only your body but your mind
Because only true treasures are hard to find
Words are inappropriate to express
How I feel
But no matter what my feelings are 
I hope you know they are real
You were there for me through thick and thin
And in sickness and in health
You are my champion 
And you deserve a belt
I wish you long life and prosperity
And indeed good health
My love for you will never die
Everlasting like the sun
Whenever I pulled out a card from a pack
 I knew you were the one
Queen of Hearts
When I was heart broken
You united the two parts
You re priceless! The only thing money can never buy
When I am with you 
I want to reach for the sky
So let us dance on the cloud
And say it out loud
I love you

You re beautiful like the rainbow
Your hair falls down your shoulders like a cascade
Ephemeral things will pass 
But you will never fade
As we renew our vows 
We walk in the path of immortality
Our days on earth will outlive humanity
What is love?
And when is it true?
What is love?
And how do you feel it in you
Love is not love when it is untrue
Love is not love
When confined to limitation
Love is not love
When defined with complication
The love that we share is beyond imagination
Fool’s paradise
I can not think when I look into your eyes
I remain a simpleton
Until my body dies
