Oh, how much time has passed since I said
for the first time, through crying and laughter,
From her I have learned what I know and what I have
given to my children. And to think that after having sacrificed so much for them
I’m nothing more than an added tax to the pay slip.
I know I have the Lord, but I just can’t
go on without the affection of my loved ones.
Just a smile, an embrace would be enough for me;
children and grandchildren close to me, even for a moment,
would give me the faith, the joy, the hope,
after this long life, to arrive at Jesus Christ,
Our Lord, as I’ve always prayed.
And meanwhile I fix my gaze, with a crown of the
Holy Rosary in my hand, on the door,
hoping that one day my prayers will become true.
I trust in you my Lord.
