It was a dream

Or let’s say,

It was just an extreme


It was a spark of light

When her soul had already died


Two worlds suddenly met

Who didn’t know their beauty yet


“En la variedad está el placer”

Was his comment to her


He didn’t know what he revived in her

The beauty and the mystery of anything rare


She allowed him to interrupt her solitude

Only she was afraid of the incertitude


To enter that world,

He should have been a real believer

Not in religion, but in something even deeper


In the 1% chance

In the magic of the last dance

And in the intellectual transcendent romance


He should have been careful

To add more dreams to something extremely dreamful



That magic only lasted for a while

It faded with silence and a big smile

And left her heart again more fragile


But as Neruda said:

“Es tan corto el amor, y es tan largo el olvido”
