    Always the eternal light


    Always my eternal light

    ( It's concerning a woman , so feminine )

    I've found this sentence on internet

    " Semper lux aeterna "

    As I recall there's a song called Lux aeterna. It's on the soundtrack of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Grammatically aeterna has to agree with lux, not the person referenced. Semper (mea) lux aeterna is fine. mea = "my."
