LIFE by Francesco Favetta


Francesco Favetta

Life tell me

how many times have you come

near the dark

and then by the sudden jousts

your voice still sang

without stopping in the wind

and when you swallow poisons

you are always reborn again.

Precious life

beautiful portrait

sleepless awakening in the heart

you my life

tree with deep roots

often on your lips

the song of love

it was the most beautiful music.

Life without skin

next to your wounds

my every smile was

the blood response

mine getting bigger

the arduous happy song

the divine Comedy

that faithful warrior heart of mine.

My life

how many more steps

within this time

in the folds of the days

along the journey of Faith

in this sea

that never stops

in the routes of the beloved song.
