Think ...


Many the world’s sorrows


everything would be tolerable

If we could see the light

distant but coveted

If we could be happy

Away from any disaster

If we could give a blessed love

And fill the glorious world with kisses ...






You surprised me ...

your look

 your shadow

The one that has been following me for so many years

It lurks my steps

my every thought

Enters my every cell to remind me of your strong being

Bleeding is performed with a sacred ritual

Invisible but visible in the eyes of the soul

Intangible, but the essence a constant pilgrim

Lustful, but denied as a preservation of the inner healing

Recurrence is not provided by the prescription


Save, Lord, your people ...



I miss you


I miss you…

You are here but I miss you ...

I miss the pulse of your breath

  Your life-giving aura that causes storms

 The smile of your eyes that delights the inconsolable soul

 You are a grain of sand that exists everywhere

 In my memory

 In my mind

 In my sigh

 In my optimism

 In my grief

 In my faith

 In my infidelity

 In the ascension of the soul

 You are my sunrise and my sunset ...
