MUJER 女士 WOMAN

Submitted by ub on

A kiss from your soft lips
That tastes fresh and sweet to me,
That escaped from your mouth
That gets into my head

The kiss I dream of
When sorrows stalk me,
You take me to heaven 
And return me to earth

I can not live without you.
And there is no cure
You warm love
drives me to madness

My love is so deep,
You're my one and only
And everyone should know

That you are my darling,
The only lady in my eyes,
That sweetens my life
The one who calms my anger
