Gifts of Passion

by Lucio Muñoz

The moon complained to the sun,
“He said he loves me,
Yet instead of giving me real roses,
He gave me fake ones,
He seems to be a cheap one”.

The sun replied softly and sweetly,
“When I myself felt in love,
I was given three fake
Dandelions, I smiled happily
As I knew, she knew, they would be with me
For ever. So much she loved me,
My priceless one”.

The moon learnt that day,
That a especial gift received is a expression,
That must be valued not in terms of money,
but in terms of passion.
