I will embrace
the albino rose
that you gave me as a gift,
when the time to say goodbye
will come,
when there will be no more sunsets
to look at together
nor dawns to wait for
to kiss each other
nor starry nights
to make love
among shooting stars.
I will enrich the garden
with albino roses
to surround me with your memories
and when night falls
even if there were no stars
my smiles would be enough
to brighten up the sky.
