Ergo Mi Amor

And there she was
Across the ocean
Standing proudly
With that serene smile
Which won my heart, time and again

She is my Angel, My Shining Star,
An ephemeral epiphany in my life
That grew as we both nurtured it,
Into an everlasting paradise

She is the rock, the steadfast
The blissful anchor that gave me light
Yet it is her very being, that inspires me,
To soar to greater heights
And touch the velvety sky

For she resides in that rarified realm,
A star in her own rights,
My darling angle, tell me that
You shine for me tonight, and the nights to come
Until the day, we bid this earth goodbye

My guardian, my very best friend,
The love of my life, and the essential good,
That permeates my being

Let me be the one to walk besides you
To hold you and carry you
In the hour of your need
To smile and laugh with you
When you are happy and pleased
What I would give, to be with you
Oh my Darling, Save that last dance for me

Kisses for my Princess

Kindness my lovely Highness
Always Shines
Radiates through your
Indelible soul, and
Nevermore shall we part, for
Although we are far
– You are Evermore in my Heart!

Many days and even more Nights
Many hours and countless seconds
Every way that Reason would render
Every path that Seasons had send us

Any mail that passes through yonder
Any rain that pitters and patters
Whether I…, would come and get her
Whether mine, does she still matter,

Sunny days, coming Remember…
Sunny smile will greet this sender

Hugging her that she in my Arms
Telling her that to me she matters
Somewhere there is a breezy calm, yes
Something tells me that ‘We’ is Forever

Kamelot…a Spectacular Asian Sunrise

Breaking through tall cloudy castles,
They came flying down,
Riding a large white steed,

Amid the cold Melbourne skies,
A brilliant Eos from the East,

The Trio swiftly slew
The beast of tyranny
In a brilliant display

Of nerve, verve and passion,
Rewrote the boundaries of the East

To thee, we thank,
For all of Asia,
May God be with you,

For Eternity
