Piece of life
BY JIMENA YENGLE
I’ve lost a stream of light
The enchanted chorus of a song
My piano key, G string
a piece of truth
Not the cup, not the thirst
I have lost the heap of sugar that I kept in my heart
My confessions, a comic face
Every bristly actor's dream
His commitment, and my question
I have lost a world of roses
The sky that my little "me" painted
Who guides Lady Liberty
Who moves so many signs in the sea
I have lost the prince of my carousel
Who flies and forgets, the child of the good
My essence of thunder, my ray of sunshine
Who remembers the story of the rain?
I have missed a part of this story.
I only have to write again.
