LEO

You have the strength
and the bold courage too,
you won’t be in a doubt to step ahead,
somebody has to find
the spring where life flows out,
quickly, there’s no time left,
death has become our master.

You know nothing about,
your innocence is clean
and cruel
as a dagger.
You leave us and tear us in shreds
however joyful your departure.
Your face towards the sun
disperses our misery.

Far, far away
the summit you reach for,
the conquest is a dream
floating about as mane,
your smile is blazing gold …

Far, far away tiredness.
Let not your joy wane,
it, by itself, will work the miracle
if at the end of the long road
compassion and joy meet.
