The poem is below.


like trees in Spring or 
like the red roses when they are in full bloom,
here is my love again,
waiting to be admired. 

I can say I have forgotten that season,
I've been removing thorns.
but at the end, I always comeback to the same point
cherchez la femme!

Not that I don't try 
It's just that I still care 
I still wait, I'm still in flames
this is not a bed of roses but still a bed.

I look for your sweating hands,every night. 
your rolling eyes, and your whispering sonnets 
I look for the way you still cry
I look for that butterfly sensation.
