(Birthday Song...in honour of Lara Koleoso)
You are the light of the brilliant sun.
The tender breezes of autumn
The rainbow which deck the heavens
The constellation of stars is illumination
That reveals your loveliness to me
Content is my heart, like a stone that bears
your regaled feet.
For as the wind blows past your face
It brings sweet memories of bygone days
The sweet happiness of virgin love
Your first exotic crush
The magic of true romance
And the sorrows of heartbreaks
But try to imagine a faultless love
Or a perfect giving of it
What you’ll hear is the rumbling of earthquakes
What you’ll see is eroding limestone
Never stable, for sure
But through it all just remember me
And you’ll never walk alone
