Aquellos Ojos Verdes

Happy Birthday, Dawn! I’m so grateful for you on so many levels. You are truly the best woman God could have found for me! I hope you have a fabulous birthday and many more to come.

You have your own song, Green Eyes, which Cold Play dedicated to you. And now you have your own haiku, a tribute to your beauty and your life. The Lord blessed this broken world with your kindness and generosity. I’m certain that everybody who knows you would agree. I hope you enjoy “Aquellos Ojos Verdes.” And again, happy birthday, my love!

The Sweetest Song

The Sweetest Song
 
 (For Dawn)
 
My lovely wife, my spine and central core,
Two minds conformed, sit reciting day
By day—a ceaseless piece preparing for:
The time when bodies split and cannot play.

A song so sweet, we lovers cannot stop,
Nor bear, we fear, one player leave the set.
Our days are gifts, which we determine not,
And each is given death’s certificate.

We etch our magnum opus from the heart,
This masterpiece, the Maestro knows, performs
For Love Divine, who knew it from the start:
A fine sonata plays throughout life's storms.

Once gone from earth, may songs in which we play
Make angels weep and God appreciate.
