The day you were born,
          the sun shone a little brighter,
                 the sky was a deeper
                            blue.

That night,
       the winter moon smiled,         
               and the stars danced
                      with the ribbons of the
                                       Northern lights.

My destiny was sealed,
         though I was but an egg
                     in my mother's womb.

We were worlds apart--
         me, high in the Alps,
               you, deep in the wilds
                                of the Lakehead.

We were opposites
         in every aspect of life,
                yet we found each other.

We will celebrate each day together,
              from now until 
                   forever.

Happy Birthday,
      my love.
