Why do I like you so much?
Could it be your perfume
that would light a fire
even in an expanse of water?
The color of your skin
that recalls the lights and shadows
that only the sunset
knows how to paint?
Could it be your passion
galloping like a steed
or your smile,
sun during the day
and lighthouse at night?
Why do I like you so much?
What is it that drives the heart to love
and the body to long for?
Maybe this is
the beauty of love,
that has so many faces
as the inhabitants of the planet.
