Someday I will find you again
When the moon in love
The night doesn't escape
When the green mountains of silence
I can collapse
When the crimson sky
Like broken glass doesn't hurt
And in a quiet canvas,
Warmly the sun sleeps
Someday I will find you again
When conquered the austere time,
So jealous of my eyes
When released the chains of my feet
And all what remains
I will mock
The broken ice in the cement hail
And who could stop the soul of mine
Perhaps secretly
Someday I will find you again
Or with the lights on
Barefoot and without fear of pain
One of those nights
Full of courage
I will forgive the hurt

Jenne, thank you so much for those amazing words! It feels good to get feedback from someone else than myself :). Here is the poem in Spanish:

volveré a buscarte algún día
cuando la luna enamorada no se salga de la noche
cuando derrumbe a la verde montana del silencio
cuando en el cielo carmín no hiera el vidrio roto
cuando el sol se duerma tibio en la quietud de su lienzo
volveré a buscarte algún día
y venceré al tiempo austero y celoso de mis ojos
soltaré las cadenas de mis pies y sus tristes despojos
burlaré al hielo en el cemento granizo roto
quién podría detener al alma mía
tal vez a escondidas
volveré a buscarte algún día
o con las luces prendidas
descalza y sin miedo al dolor
en una noche de ésas
llena de valor
volveré a perdonar tus heridas
