It has been many years since our first encounter. If first impressions are anything to go by, I was floored by your presence.
I have never before met anyone quite like you, nor has there been anyone else since.
You waltzed into my life, and bowled me over with that iridescent smile of yours, warming me with your glow.
And danced your way into my heart.
You never cease to mesmerise; in all seasons,
And all weathers under heaven.
There were times when you doubted your beauty; but all that is needed is an appreciating eye. To such, you are more beautiful than words would allow.
As with all relationships, however, we have had our ups and downs, and moments when we don’t see eye to eye.
But as always, you stand tall in all your resplendent glory, reminding us of the slow-burn romance that has withstood the tests of time.
And at times I wonder, how do I unlove you now?
My Sydney. My Home…
