My life!


Hold me

by hand


do not go

said again

my words

find the strength

of this sky


sky blue

that always


my soul.





fly on

my eyes

you smile

in my day

write the poems

and love verses.

Set me on fire


ignite me



my meat

in my thoughts

give me

the heat

of your light

do not turn off


my blood



switched on.

Always Ready Smiles!


With the hands

earth dirty

sweat on the forehead

so tired and hungry

they were the little wonders

warrior hearts

the battles of many parents

of other times

great hard workers

tireless workers

safe havens for families

faces wrinkled by time

walk united in faith

hand in hand

of the mate.

The smell of warm bread

always on the table

those seeds never violated

the big love

locked up in pain

work under the sun

that stole from rest

a long time

but he honored

and gave dignity

they were the parents

calloused hands

than once

those ever-ready smiles

to life and freedoms.

What More Do I Have To Say


What do you want me to tell you

that I haven't already told you

that perhaps the world

it's wrong

that the clouds are in the hands

of those who believe in tomorrow

life goes backwards

the sun cries

the beauty

always stay in the heart

and a dirty kiss of love

the mouths that love each other.

What more do I have to tell you

man of my generation

that my words

they are full of emotions

shivers up my arms

it's the tears that flow

I don't speak but I write

poems and reflections

i love the beautiful

even the crumbs of the heart

and every breath

born instantly.
