Per Te - A Painting of Roses

"Per Te"
20 x 16 x 3/4 inches, Oil on Canvas
Available
$300 + s/h
Per Te

Sento nell'aria profumo di te
Piccoli sogni vissuti con me
Ora lo so, non voglio perderti
Quella dolcezza così senza età
La tua bellezza rivali non ha
Il cuore mio vuole soltanto te

Per te, per te, vivrò
L'amore vincerà
Con te, con te avrò
Mille giorni di felicità
Mille notti di serenità
Farò quello che mi chiederai
Andrò sempre dovunque tu andrai
Darò tutto l'amore che ho per te

Dimmi che tu già il futuro lo sai
Dimmi che questo non finirà mai
Senza di te non voglio esistere
I named this painting "Per Te" on the spur of the moment and then googled it to see if I could come up with some sweet saying, poem or lyric when I found this by song by Josh Groban. Although I know who he is, I don't think I've really listened to him music. These lyrics are beautiful - click here - for the translation and the whole poem.

Hi Karine and Ann - thank you so much...I'm starting to like the song more and more : )

Happily,
Judy

Judy, another lovely painting, I love the contrast or the hint of the table against the background, and of course, the texture is awesome.

I have to say when I first read the title, I thought PURTY, as pretty with a Texan drawl...leave it to me to get it wrong :-) Thank you for the song and translation, but I do think this is a "mighty fine purty painting, mam".
