THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING
José Araujo de Souza
You were coming,
like someone who arrives without wanting to arrive,
and you stayed with me.
There were no orders
and no sign
announcing the beginning of everything.
Only our eyes met
and our looks said, smiling,
each other, that we were there.
You were staying,
like someone who doesn’t want to stay,
and I didn’t let you out anymore.
There were no orders and no sign.
Just disorder in the heart,
before suffered and accommodated.
Only the sweet pleasure of the presence,
that completes the incomplete being.
There was only the rise of tenderness
that we gave each other,
and that will never end,
even if we want to,
because it doesn’t belong to us anymore
and this love no longer obeys us
that was born with your arrival, that I longed so much, so much,
