Today you are beautiful

Today you are beautiful,
more pretty than on any other day
and if you want to find fault with these words
then you do not see how I see you laugh.

Today you are lovely to me,
more noble than any flower
and on such a day I thank God
that you do surprise and astonish me at times.
