    Hi, keannu!
    I've heard that expression in the song called "You Are the Sunshine of MY Life."(Stevie Wonder)

    There are several expressions that come to mind:
    "She's my pride and joy!"
    "She's the light of my life!"
    "She's the sunshine of my days and the moonlight of my nights!"

    Cole Porter (1934) went a bit over the top with this idea in his song You're the Top.
