There are no words to thank you for your love,
None can suffice: they would be infinite.
For all you teach me, I thank stars above:
Until the dawn absorbs their gentle light.
Yet I shall give you words that you taught me,
The precious gift of words, which I adore:
For in your goodness you taught me to see:
To look beyond rough seas and search for shore.
I thank you with each movement of my heart,
I cherish you in every breath I take;
Though there are times that we must be apart,
My fierce, gentle love shall never break.
Always you are with me, and I with you:
I thank God for all the goodness that you do.
