The smile on my face is most persistent.
The sun shines brighter, the air smells sweeter,
The pillow softer, the sleep much deeper.
With a new gleam in my eye, I embrace the day,
Having a fuller heart, I turn none away.
So why now this joy, this peace I savor,
Seems I've searched forever, a life's labor?
Within the mirror, is such a happy gent,
I realize Katherine, you're why my world is different!
