HAVE YOU EVER FELT IN THE NIGHT
WHEN SHADOWS RULE HERE
A QUIET VOICE SINGING,
AN IMMENSE SADNESS CRYING?

HAVE YOU EVER FELT IN YOUR EARS
THE SILENT TRAGIC NOTES
PLAYED BY MY FINGERS,
MY DEAD AND PALE FINGERS?

HAVE YOU EVER FELT MY TEARS
SLIDING THROUGH YOUR MOUTH
AND MY HANDS OF SNOW,
GETTING CLOSER TO YOURS OF ROSE?

HAVE YOU EVER FELT IN YOUR DREAMS
A SHADOW DRIFTING
ON THE AIR?

DID YOUR LIPS FEEL A KISS
EXPLODING IN YOUR BED?
SALVATION
SALVATION

I PROMISE YOU, MY LIFE,
I SAW YOU SCARED IN MY ARMS
BREATHING, CLOSER, SOFTER TO ME

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer (Rima XCI)
