Love is like Fireworks

Love is like fireworks.
Exploding high in the sky
in bright loud colours …
then letting them fall gently
into our hearts.

Love is like fireworks.
If you push too hard
you play with fire.

Love is an explosive chest of fireworks
full of colours
each lighting up the other.

L-Imħabba Bħal Murtal

L-imħabba bħal murtal.
Meta tisplodi tifqa' s-sema 
b'kuluri jgħajtu ...
u mbagħad tħallihom jaqgħu bil-mod 
fil-qlub.

L-imħabba bħal murtal. 
Jekk trażżnu żżejjed 
tkun qed tilgħab bin-nar.

L-imħabba kaxxa 'nfernali
mimlija kuluri 
jixegħlu 'l xulxin.
