My love for Maria is pure, sincere, single. I need to see her always smiling, so I can smile. I still dream every day with a simple hug, that would make all the difference in my life. Nothing would be enough to show all pride, admiration and affection I feel for her. The years may pass, the months, but my love will remain. I love her in every way, and no matter what time it is, I will continue to love, can change, but will still be Love."
