    You’re my friend, my fan, my incredible love
    You surely were all of the above
    When I am down, you’re always there
    We’re not jut a couple we’re a perfect pair
    My advisor, my conscience, my magical mate
    You’ve made life a dream even when I am awake
    When God put us on the path to meet
    My heart couldn’t believe how hard it could beaten
    You’ve made me happier than I could ever believe
    Nothing on earth could make me leave
