It is not gold or diamonds
From far-off mines I seek
Nor wealth and opulence

But the calm serenity
With the love of my life
Today, and for eternity

A cup of tea together
Our lives, entwined forever
Like a bouquet of flowers

In the sun...


Il n'est pas or
Des mines sud-africaines
Ou richesses et l'opulence

Mais, le calme et la sérénité
Avec l'amour de ma vie
Aujourd'hui et à jamais

Une tasse de thé ensemble
Notre vie en main
Comme un bouquet au soleil

Incroyable ...
