May God pay you back

 

He played the guitar as if t was the last time

watched the green field as if it was the only one

and loved his woman with the ultimate passion,

as if  bodies joined together  by invisible weld.

He altered his smile as if it was the happiest.

 

May God pay you back

 

He drank from the guitar with stubborn passion

fell on her body as if it was to be welded

and spoiled the invisible field as if it was the happiest

and altered his smile as if it was a prince.

He floated on the air as if it was a bird.

 

May God pay you back

 

He stumbled on the princess as if it was a guitar

and altered the air as if it was visible

and floated on a field as if it was green

and fell down on the birds

disrupting the Saturday.

 

For the Saturday that will float

And for the birds playing bold

For the altered visible

and for the simply invisible

For the bodies welded together

For the spoiled princes and smiling princesses

For the flies that will kiss our corpses

and for the wailers that will grief us

 

May God pay you back
