Ballad – Sonia Sanchez

(After the Spanish)…

Forgive me if I laugh

You are so sure of love

You are so young

And I too old to learn of love

The rain exploding

In the air is love

The grass excreting her

green wax is love

And stones remembering past steps is love

But you. You are too young

For love and I too old

Once. What does it matter

When or who, I knew

Of love

I fixed my body

Under his and went

To sleep in love

All trace of me

Was wiped away

Forgive me if I smile

Young heiress of a naked dream

You are so young

and I too old to learn of love

Be yourself. There is no one better.
