Pensador Louco

A Gift

If I had, between possessions and funds
The whole world kept in a thimble
And if I rejected each one of its corners
The way I disown grains of salt

I would still wonder, daydreaming
About this plain, simple globe
That in its full, silver, shiny way
Gave light to this endless dark

But anyway, tonight is yours alone
See, I land the dark at your hands
Keep this moon with you, then
Turn your howls into a song

And awake from their sleep, in tears
A world who hasn't yet realized
That the night, the moon and its charms
Are in a thimble that is yours from now on.
