You- Eduardo Mesquita

You are in my night the brightness of the dawn,
the sweet crackling of a sublime fire,
you are in poetry my goddess, the perfect sound
the verse that always rhymes with my desire.

You are the one who gives me everything,
a romance that my sadness cheers me on,
a nymph in my dreams, the desired one,
in a desire so crazy that it oppresses me.

You are the one who makes me be like this,
the reason of my steps, always in your way
the one that makes me feel in an eternal frenzy.

You are in my tiredness  my rest, my heat, my light,
that makes me forget the cold during the day.
You, without being crazy, drive me crazy every night.

Eduardo Mesquita
