The Word

This poem won the second prize in Lisbon Poetry Festival in 2016

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We men and women of unclean lips,
And desperately in need of you.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We walked in darkness,
But in your compassion you made your light shine upon us.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We ragged slaves, evil prisoners and ourselves,
But the little faith in the Son of Man brought freedom to us.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We, men and women wandering aimlessly and you have had mercy on us,
With your love enveloped us with tenderness and have put a new road ahead of us.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We, a gap in the universe,
Were filled for you.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We wandering sheep without a shepherd,
Grazed by your great love.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
We who were lost,
We had our history rewritten by you.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
Emmanuel, God with us.
In the verses of poets have become latent your presence within us.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
Poetry is made of your trail left in this world.
Without it my sonnets would be mere words without feeling wrappers.

Incarnated divine Word you were among us!
In the poetry of this life and verses poet and feelings,
That expresses life and beauty in this world created by you.
