What magician
could turn tears
into smiles,
sadness into joy,
discouragement into hope?
What magic wand
if not the sparkle of love
can change a rainy day
into a starry night,
a bush of brambles
in a garden of roses
and just like magic
make sorrows and sufferings,
anguishes and pains disappear
or show
a carpet of scented flowers
on a carpet of burning lava?
And whoever says that magic doesn't exist

does not know love.
