I found a purpose to my aimless life And knew, with all my heart, you were the one I'd strive to make my dearest, loving wife; But more than that: my stars, my moon, my sun! And ever since you've been my polar star, My truest guide through years of tears and joy, The deepest love that ills could never mar And storms and stress and age could not destroy, And know, your beacon eyes beneath their clouds still shine And draw me back to you, my brilliant valentine.
