Thanks for everything.
Every word, every sigh, every kiss.
Thanks for everything.
For bringing me moments like this.
For taking the skies of gray,
And making them blue.
For taking my cares away.
I tip my heart to you.
So thanks for everything
Every thrill in your tender caress.
Thanks to you alone.
For all that I’ll ever possess.
You gave me my reason to dream,
And made every dream come true.
And so for everything, my thanks to you.
