You have a smile that lights the world,
Shining from within,
Breaking out between the clouds
That form the skin of self.

Lucky we, to live nearby
That unpretentious sun,
To share its fire, to feel its love,
To know its warmth so well.

Just as the sun’s sweet liquid joy
Is captured in the wine,
So with us your happiness
Is captured in our lives.
