What I loved most about you was your voice
Fogged most of the time, like a fresh bread
That calls to love first, then gives a rest
A friend to me all the time, loved all the time

What I loved most about you was your hands
Cool as a spring water, small and white
I saw many bautiful things on this world
The best is to wake up one morning with your hands

What I loved most about you was your eyes
Sometimes a childish blue, sometimes contrarily green
Brightness, health, happiness
None of these is as meaningful as your eyes

What I loved most about you was your smile
Making me happy, growing flowers of hope inside me
It eases all my pains, difficulties
My world finds its meaning when you smile

What I loved most about you was your behavior
Your mercy for the weak, your resistance to unjust
Your being a proud wild tigress
Against injustice and despotism

What I loved most about you was your heart full of love
Your motherhood covering all the children
In this world where loves are sold for one penny
You are the one who holds love above everything

What I loved most about you was your reflection on me
Your existence in me, your being one with me
I loved your your bravery, honesty, pureness
I loved you, I loved you, I loved…
