" Y PRESINTIENDO EL DOLOR <POR QUERERME, AUNQUE ME HAYAS RECHASADO POR RICARDO LEAL >

Sabes hermoso tesoro
Tu hermosura me motiva
Y aunque me lo niegas todo
En tus manos está mi vida.
Con tu dulzura y belleza
Me has robado el corazón
Entendiendo mi torpeza
De no contar con tu amor.
Deseándote como estoy
Perdido y enamorado
Aunque me lo niegas todo
Me acerco a ti demasiado.
Soñando con tus encantos
Entre las flores te veo
Contemplándote en si tanto
Que hasta el sueño me lo creo.
Queriéndote y sé que no tengo
De ti lo que me ha gustado
Sufro porque me mantengo
Deseando estar a tu lado.
Viendo tu buen corazón
Aunque de otro enamorado
Sufriendo también el dolor
Por quererme, y haberme rechazado."
