BOFH: When was the last time someone said these exact words to you: You are the sunshine of my life?

fredesmite Bronze badge

Dear BOFH

You are the sunshine of my life

That's why I'll always be around

You are the apple of my eye

Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning

Though I've loved you for a million years

And if I thought our love was ending

I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

You are the sunshine of my life, yes you are

That's why I'll always be around

You are the apple of my eye

Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must to know, you must to know that I was lonely

Because you came to my rescue

I know that I must be in heaven

How could so much love be inside of you?

Inside of you

Are the sunshine of my life
