-Reading. FIREWORK Poetry My Little girl with blue eyes

Hey you! Yes, you my little girl.
How do you do to hypnotize me every time
I look into those deep blue eyes
Full of bright and sweetness?

How lovely and gorgeous they are
The depth of thousands of oceans and glimmering skies
Are melted on them, being impossible for me to avoid
Their power to dominate my senses while you foolishly
Play with my heart like a cold-wicked child.

Hey you! Yes, you. The one with savage and wild nature
Daughter of the earth and lover of the greenish forest
The goddesses are jealous of your beauty and charm
But you, with you peaceful, self-controlled but proud existence
Just stands there to make me suffer and comfort me at the same time.

Oh my little girl! You are the one who takes all my pains away
Bringing relief to this poor broken heart
Stop please! Don’t walk too fast, just stay by my side till the world ends
My little girl with deep blue eyes and wild nature
All what I can say is I LOVE YOU.
