It’s only an Anniversary to me but one I cherish infinitely. Three years ago you burst into my life and although I try to take it in stride, it’s been an exhilarating ride.
Since you arrived, I see life with ocean-size eyes. I’m constantly inspired. The flames sizzling in the astral plane emancipate every page. Seconds into minutes, weeks into one more weekends, intergalactic excursions and intracranial adventures empower every hour. It’s been a mesmerizing one thousand and ninety six days. I look forward to thousands more amour.
When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Running with the wild things"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a set of eyes at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk in a dream and you know you're not dreaming alone
That's amore
