Simply sublime.

A lovely gift to a partner in what is obviously a wonderful marriage.

The lyric, your vocal, the melody and the arrangement are glorious.

And the mix glues it all together so well with a room filling soundstage.



PS And the video was a pleasant visit with the family.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

A little de-essing might be nice but otherwise WELL DONE.

Thanks, Ray. Appreciate your comments.

Very pretty . . . Wow, what a vocal on this—killer. And a beautiful write. Really pretty, really sweet tune. You are a lucky man to have such love in your life . . . and I bet she’s a lucky girl to have you in hers. Congrats on your 43rd anniversary. God bless!

My best to you both,
