|Well, my best way to say something to him,|
it would be with a poem... and that's my present.
I've been thinking a lot lately about
the nature of this name.
A river always borns inside
the deepest mountain,
trying to color the ansious fact that
creatures do not live without its eternity.
A phoenix is a mythological being
who survives through the ashes of a volcano...
and never dies.
I might print this footstep
on your home page so that you could never be forgot,
because I can't take you from the paradise's entry,
I'm not as powerful as a God who wants you beside.
But everytime I see your face
I might ask why does a River always ethernal?
