Open your chest

Pray, did you open your chest

And let the skies’ will in its depth?

If you did not,

Bear in mind that someday,

The seas of regret shall wake up in you

And you shall only be able to let yourself drown

Without even being able to reach out to help’s hand!

 

Pray, shall you ever open your chest

And let the skies’ will in its depth?

I have done so, knees bent,

Ego swallowed and the outlook positive,

I have done so,

For I have seen the truth of life

I have done so,

For now, other than obeying the skies

I have no other aspirations for my being!

 

Why, I wait for when you shall open your chest

And let the skies will immerse its depth

To such an extent

That, like me, you shall care to live your due

As dutifully as you can

Till you shall hoist me up the ladder

That the skies shall throw at us!

 

Yes, we belong not to this world

Here, we are like shadows, inexistent

Here, we are like clouds, so subtle

Here, we are like air, uncatchable!

 

Why, I shall wait, for when you shall open your chest

To let the skies’ will in its depth

Your heart, I am sure, remains as thirsty as mine

To be saved, through love meant to last across eternity!
