Happy Birthday

This is the birthday card my little nephew made for me. He explained to me what he drew:

The wiggly line at the bottom is water.
The wiggly line in the middle is a mountain
The wiggly line at the top is snow.
There’s a flower on the left.

Then he hugged me and said ‘I love you’.

To me, all those translate into these words:

Kasih dan sayangku
Seluas lautan
Setinggi gunung
Seputih salju
Seharum mawar

[my love
as big as the ocean
as high as the mountain
as pure as the snow
as sweet as the rose]

How sweet of him.

p.s.: Sorry I couldn't find exact the English word to describe the exact feeling. Even the Malay words was helped by his mother. Though she saw the ‘painting’, she had no idea what my nephew drew until I told her.
