I tried and tried to tell the stories,
Of common feelings passing by
But truth is that I have no glories
And certain lacks I can’t deny.
I died to conquer and to stand
Against the many pains I’ve felt
I broke my heart to understand
Deceitful cards my life has delt.
I kneeled to pray and asked and cried
For things that other people flaunted
Thank God he knew it was just pride
And gave instead the life I wanted.
What I have saved from what I’ve lived
Is seeding love that can not fade
But some will ask: What If you need
Another thing, one day, to trade?
I’ll say that life has granted more
But truest love is what I seek
For other things might have in store
But love is what I mean to keep.
The truth is that I have no glories
No fortune, name or things to pride
The way I love has been my story
My lover’s heart has been my guide.
