My heart was deceived By a weaker tongue That was bound by captivity, A feeble voice and An uncertain wrong That were clearly divested Of my world’s gravity!
I let my silence be stripped Of a real and touching story That wanted to be translated Into a language barely heard, When down below the surface, A deeper need was damning My then tormented mind Which I was no longer Bridging any words!
I told of nothing at all When aloud I wanted to call, So imprisoned I was, That if I saw an open door, I would not dare to trust it That it was really open And would not disappear!
The walls around me Were tightly closing, pressing out the air From my weaken lungs And getting then trapped Within a building vanishing From the horizon!
Time was passing by rapidly, So desperate I was getting, That faith and hope started To run very, very low But suddenly, at the distance, I saw a powerful bright light Approaching me closer Every minute that collapsed!
By surprise, my human’s spirit Started to rise very high,too, Not knowing that you were The one behind the light, Ready to welcome me Into your warm and open arms! My life regained its strength again And feeling happy with you, The one of my dream!
