Beautiful Dreams Fall From The Sky

I see his face looking out the window


With a suspended soul

Between a sky and a garden

That awaits the ancient splendor



The pace of every step

Bitter and sweet


From there, across the rough road



Still the sea

That rises and falls

With its big waves


That woman doesn’t know

That the most beautiful dreams

Fall from the sky.


She doesn’t know the whole thing

It dips in the early morning light.


That woman gets carried away in the waves

Without ever leaving her hand


That woman doesn’t know…

To be the love!
