Is this What They Call Love ?

Is this What They Call Love ?

He was born and smiled.
He discovered a new world with amazement,
his mother’s smile greeted him,
What alchemy transforms pain into love?
Will it be the first lesson he learned?
the lost word in dark matter,
in the maze of life,
love?

The fledgling stonemason who cuts his stone,
spattering his cloak with rubble,
wounding unconscious, his own hand,
filling his eyes with scum,
turning them red,
filling them with tears,
but by his side he feels patient; without anger,
the companion and teacher: his brother,
to teach him how to shape his stone,
protecting it from the stubble,
covering him with his apron,
Is this what they call love?

He doesn’t avert his eyes
of the man who stretches out his hand,
among the souls that come and go,
who extends his hand asking for a piece of bread,
Among the garden where once stood an apple tree,
Is this what they call love?

Fight daily with the fierce chimera,
that burns the man who believes in absolute reason
Could it be that you believe that freedom is the same as love?
Could it be that he senses the same chimera that strikes with his dragon legs? ,
He keeps fighting because he believes that his heart has its own conviction,
Gentlemen I want to know:
Is this what they call love?

He, on his lips, always has a smile drawn,
in his hands that give without waiting he has a song,
He feels his breeze on his face from the stars,
and feeds on the honey of forgiveness,
without hesitation he covers the naked with his shirt,
recognizes his siblings as such
combs the hair of wise Artemis,
And recognize THE ALL and love as one,
like the great immortal.
Is this what they call love?

God I want to know
Why am I feeling a magnet inside of me?
my two opposite poles repudiating each other,
but powerfully attracted to each other,
with the force of a sledgehammer,
with the strength of God,
and his arm,
Plunging a chisel deep inside of me
Is this what they call love?
