This can be no more than a song,
I wish it could be a declaration of love,
romantic, without concern for any such forms
that would put a brake on what
I’m feeling now in such abundance.
I love you, I love you, eternally I love you.
If you weren’t around, I wouldn’t die,
because if I have to die,
I want it to be with you.
My solitude feels less alone,
that’s why I sometimes know
that I need your hand, your hand,
eternally your hand.
When I saw you I knew it was true,
this fear of finding myself uncovered.
You stripped me, with seven reasons.
You open my chest
every time you overwhelm me
with loves, eternally with loves.
If I ever feel defeated,
I will renounce seeing the sun every morning,
reciting the creed you’ve taught me.
I’ll look at your face,
and I’ll say, in the window,
Yolanda, Yolanda, eternally Yolanda.
