Beautiful, George! How lucky your wife is to have a husband who write such love songs.

I agree, Jeri! You've come out with so many memorable, meaningful songs this past year (and before, of course!) Thanks for sharing.

Ugh, sorry - very cloying, especially rhyming 'rocks' with 'walks'. I need to get a scrape.

No problem grumpy, no need to apologise or for anonymity either, all honest views are valid and equally welcome. Some people like sentimental/cloying, others not. As for the rhyme "rocks"/"walks", it's called a "sprung" rhyme - matching final consonents, such as "cough"/"lough".

I like honey, me... :-)

'Cough' and 'lough' only share final consonants in writing, not in pronunciation.

Not to quibble, "bent" and "ant" then...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhyme#Types_of_rhyme.

The alternative is "oblique rhyme". In any case, they are both valid. I like Golden Syrup too :-)

Don't want to microscopically analyze the rhyming. I think one has to be trying hard to find something they don't like to have a problem with "walks" and "rocks". If I don't notice it accidentally, it doesn't matter to me.

Then what can, do. Them what can't, bitch. (The "teaching" is for those who can do and can explain it so others can too.)

Joey Dee and the Starlighters managed to rhyme "la la" with "twilight."

"Sitting in the larm lah,
Waiting for my ya ya - agh agh"

You can usually get away with approximate rhymes.

Good song, George, and I'm sure appreciated by the good lady.

"Beautiful" just about says it all. Grumpy... if I wasn't such a demure and polite young thing, I'd tell ya ta

Well, there are SO many choices. You fit in the blank.

Heartwarming! Vanessa is a lucky lady -- and you already know what a lucky man you are -- which is, of course, why you wrote the song...

George, somewhere around 100 years ago an advertiser considered an 11 stone (154lb, 70kg) woman a sylph! He was advertising some sort of weight reduction product in a magazine & promised a return to this sylph-like weight by faithful use of the product.

sandra (who once was a sylph-like 11 stone)

Happy New Year to you & Vanessa & wishing you many more great songs

Well, a big Bronx cheer to the nitpickers. I was delighted to get to hear such a beautiful song straight from the heart. Charming and anything but cloying. Thank you GP!
