Cuánto en mi vida he soñado poder ofrecerte una rosa que guarde bajo sus pétalos la mirada del sol brillante y que nunca pierda su aroma, a fuerza de perfumar sueña con ser una estrella aunque siendo tan bella antes que muera la pondré en tu regazo y descansará entre tus manos dejando sus pétalos y aroma regados en tu corazón. Te quiero, no me olvides Gracias por existir.
