If I dreamed a dream
and that dream was you
I would pray that I dreamed again.
If I schemed a scheme
of incomparable lies
Would you recognise the truth within them?
If I am the bow
that loosens the arrow
Are you the shield or the cushion?
If I am the sugar
in your cup of tea
Would we need a stirrer to sweeten?
If I write the song
and you play the music
Would the words need to be spoken?
If I was a stream
and you were the sea
Forever I'd flow to you unbroken.
May their sentiments be auspicious. May they live a graceful life that is full of mutual love and warmth. May they be able to see for a hundred years, live a healthy life for a hundred years and listen to the music of spring for a hundred years.
