Te quiero mucho porque eres un ángel.
Tus ojos son estrellas del espacio.
Tu pelo es una pluma ligera.
Tus labios son como una rosa.
Porque tu belleza ni en la noche se apaga.
Porque eres como dia,
y la noche se acaba…
I love you so much because you are an angel.
Your eyes are stars from space.
Your hair is a light feather.
Your lips are like a rose.
Because your beauty does not turn off, even at night.
Because you are like day,
and night ends…
