Llovizna serena sin agua y con letras

 

de palabra dulce, de sonrisa eterna.

 

Tinta en el papel, color en la tela.

 

Es un tesoro escondido

 

de mirada quieta.

 

Lenta se acerca,

 

suave se aleja

 

y  sutil flota

 

la esencia

 

del poema

 

que deja.

Today I woke up looking for myself…confused.

 

Longing for my own presence.

 

I felt my empty hands

 

and I saw my face in the mirror

 

with the traces of the distance I have walked.

 

I opened the luggage of my journeys

 

and took out one of the faces I keep in it;

 

a mask of laughter and happiness,

 

I placed it over my worn out face

 

and saw the world through the window, outside…waiting.

IT IS EARLY

It is still too early to forget you

To scratch you out of my grocery list

Together with my bread and my milk

It is too early to replace you

In the drawers of my memory

I’ll just close them…

That’s it.

 

Your voice sang to me

Like sirens to lost pirates

Your arms were the perfect pillow to my face

Your eyes like emeralds…

Your eyes like emeralds gave me back

The riches of faith.

 

It is even too early 

To continue writing about goodbyes

and ask God to wipe the tears off this grief

It’s early

Still.
