All the time I spent in holy matrimony with you
Has compensated for all the losses I suffered without you

And your precious love and affection in my life.
I’m so happy and honoured to be called your wife!

I remember the torture of seeing couples in love and together
While I was alone, and how I prayed to God to change the weather

Conditions of the season in my cold, lonely life without love.

From nowhere, you suddenly appeared and set me free
From sadness, opression and captivity

brought on by incompleteness and loneliness.
I’ve waited so long for a love like this!

So on some nights when love becomes our souls’ glue
that joins us together and makes one of two

bodies, souls, minds and hearts,

the body rush and your heart’s voice say, “you are mine”
and together, that love and reassurance help me feel the sunshine

even if thunderclouds are in the air
or if darkness is in us, around us, eeverywhere!

I am therefore so grateful toward God above
For providing us with a way to express our love

For each other when words are not enough.

So eat your honey and drink your wine,
For I am yours only and you are mine.

Eat and drink and have your fill.
Let’s feel the joy; let time stand still

For us until dawn breaks and the shadows flee!

Then, tomorrow, when it’s daytime and you are gone
and I’m at home and so aware that I’m alone,

I’ll remember and hold on to the love we’ll make tonight …



Kisses are sometimes a wordless promise to return.
It can start fires and make you burn.

Sometimes, a kiss signals the end of a fight.
It can also be an invitation to stay for the night.

Whatever the occasion, when your lips touch mine,
it’s like drinking old and reputable wine.

Their tenderness makes me believe that I can fly.
It’s the medication that heals me and the drug that gets me high.

Forgive me for my addiction and substance abuse,
but no rehabilitation is needed; there’s simply no use!

You’ll just end up wasting your precious time and energy.
Besides that, I have an allergy:

I get homesick when I’m away from you,
so living with my addiction is the only thing you can do …
