I Adore Your Beauty

Wanderlino Arruda

I adore your beauty,
the light of your sympathy,
the tasteful love that’s in your eyes,
a brightness, a happy blessing
that your soul doesn’t hide,
that makes you so wonderful!

How good is loving life
in the way that I see you love.
It would be so good
if we were always together,
to see the sun and the moon,
feeling the stars, counting them
in time and in the infinite,
with everlasting tenderness.

It would be so good to have always
the sensation of your presence,
of your heat and fine skin,
of the joy, of your life!
