Love of my life


Oh! Love of my life, you are the sky of hope
The river in our village knows this
And the birds whisper your names as I pass
I wonder how you fly so well, and carry my heart
To sit with you on the clouds,
How well you swim and how romantic the water embraces your skin
You fit with the nature that I love
And your beauty is promptly unique
Play with the flute between my fingers
And the wooden one on my waist
Before the evening wind wraps its visit
Your waist is like the blue gum tree in the palace
Smooth and curved to fit your small head
That sticks to your body like a pigeon
On top of my grandmother’s hut
