Everyday I see you
I tell you how I feel;
I sigh, we chat, you hear me,
Your presence my heart heals,
Everyday I’m with you
And no matter where I go,
I’ll long for you and wish that you
Could always be my home…
So green and lush and magickal,
You took me in your arms;
I dream of you so many nights –
You’ve caught me with your charms.
Your English Daisy fairies,
Who sing to me each spring,
Your snowdrops who, so thrilingly,
Announce the warmth they bring;
Your evergreens and usnea,
Your salty ocean air,
Your mountains and your misty moods
Have nowhere their compare.
You are in my skin,
And love I’m in,
I publicly declare!
