A Garden Of Flowers For Your Birthday

I am not going to wait for you to get ill
Or to die to send you bouquets of flowers
Right now is the time to make you feel
That you're loved amid the rain showers.

You are deeply loved my beautiful lady
You are always in my mind, in my thoughts
One day does not pass by without the lust
The love of you, under the shadow of my tree.

I tried to bring you a few rainbows, unfortunately
I was able to bring one, the biggest one, the others
Were to shy. They say that, this year, they're too tiny.

Next year, they'll be more glamorous and colorful across
The marvelous blue sky. Later on, there'll be more sips and zests
I'm wishing you: Happy Birthday with all my love and my guts.
