I Want to Give You

I want to Give You

(Translation of Arturo Montero Vega’s “Quiero Darte” by Donald Lindsey)

I want to give you something,
a heroic act,
a squeeze of the hand.
I want to give you the leaves of your body,
the wood of your soul,
the bread of your table.
I want to give you a smile,
a gesture,
anything at all.

Quiero Darte

By Arturo Montero Vega

Quiero darte una hermosa,

un acto heroico,

un apretón de manos.

Quiero darte las hojas de to cuerpo,

la madera del alma,

el pan de tu mesa.

Quiero darte una sonrisa,

un gesto, cualquier cosa.
