The sun was born in a cold night,
 between hope and a hurt love,
and as a light beam, never before lived,
a life was born,with all the angels above

It was like waking up from a wounded heart,
the rejuvenation of a finished soul,
it was like a fertilizer, in a sown land,
a life was born at dawn faithfull.

The sun was born, the sky became different,
with more light, more faith, became more sparkling,
it grew bluer in a tone resplendent

The sun was born, like a bright song,
and shined for all so intensely,
who looked more like an angel, a pure diamond.

Dedicated to my son Gabriel
the day he was born, 01-14-2004
