one of my favorites outside of shakespeare (love sonnet太经典了)
In the realm of numbers, where balance is our song,
Where columns of figures, to us, truly belong.
My heart, a ledger, records feelings so strong,
For you, my dear, to whom my affections prolong.
Like assets and liabilities, we’re two parts of a whole,
Your love is the credit that balances my soul.
In the algebra of us, you’re the positive goal,
The constant that rescues me from the black hole.
You are the profit in my year-end report,
The comforting surplus when days are short.
In the audit of life, you’re my favorite sort,
The one non-variable in my thought.
Your laughter, a dividend that’s compounded each day,
Your smile, a bonus that brightens the gray.
Our love, an investment that will always pay,
In the currency of happiness, in every single way.
In the equation of us, you’re the perfect sum,
The total of everything that I’ve become.
Without you, my numbers would be tiresome,
You are my theorem, proven and done.
So here is my proposal, in accountant’s style,
Let’s balance the books of love for a while.
With you by my side, every mile,
Life feels less like a trial.
In the spreadsheet of existence, cell by cell,
With you, every number, every formula spells -
A love that’s more than words can tell,
In my heart, where you dwell.
So here’s to us, in ledgers and in love,
May our balance always fit like a glove.
With you, my dear, and the stars above,
You’re the one I’ll always be dreaming of.
