I stay in your memory
not to forgive oblivion
Do not get lost without consciousness of
my loneliness
Do not hurt as I gaze
your critical eye
I want you  next to me,
in every beat of my heart to feel you
In my every attitude,
breath to take from your echo
to reign in the sunless alleys
of your medieval streets
Just as old Gaius, Julius Caesar
during their course
and the Sacred Augustine in his Theology…


Words are worthless to show
what the sun is hiding ...
The passion is multiple, juicy and nice
puts wings in our youth,
to the oestrus of our lives
It really gives power to get up
leads us  to his crypt ...
We joke together nostalgically
Love unites the peoples,
affects the whole world
mitigates the extremes
gives joy to life,  does not know what means hate
That is why her verse should flourish worthily in our soul…


To the parable of glory
the svelte girl of youth,
is imaginatively driven,
to the endless passion,
Spontaneous, mysterious life
Give her your lights
Be careful not to lose her way
Build  bridges, secure stations
Of joy, dexterity, happiness
Grasp her shoulder gently
Irritate the  memories
Of peaceful birds and hope ...
Lead her to the delightful
Labyrinth of knowledge
