by Edilson Afonso Ferreira
By suddenly noticing the largeness of the horizons
and all beauty they unceasingly frame our world.
By tender and dreamlike resting tonight,
seeing her face before asleep.
By enjoying full air all the day long,
missing it when she approaches me.
Surely, I must be in love.
But with whom, I have no doubt that
nor to the walls should I reveal.
