I tried to imagine our garden
filled with roses you love,
my senses
embraced in your scent.
I tried to remember your lips
waking me up in the morning
and your hand
playing with mine
when the moon and its rays
invite us to sleep.
I tried to keep your smile
in my heart,
your voice
among the most beautiful music,
your cheerfulness
among the unforgettable memories.
I tried to believe
to wish something in my life
other than you,
without succeeding.
I tried to love you,
but love
love ...
we cannot take it out,
it comes on its own,
and to fall in love
we must want to fall in love.
