Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
Thank you, Lord, for making Heaven the color of her eyes
For the blueness that I look into is the color of the skies,
And thanks again for making the dove the color of her skin
And for painting the sunrise with the glow of her early-morning grin.
Thank you, Great One, for making the sun the color of her hair
For the texture and the softness that I find beyond compare,
And for giving the warm, mid-summer breeze the softness of her touch.
All these wonders of nature you created from the one I love so much.
Thank you, sweet Lord, for giving angels the purity of her face
And for giving the larks her happiness and the wind, her warm embrace,
Her brilliance to the peacock, her tranquility to the sea
And thank you, Lord, most of all for giving her to me.
